Using existing trails, networks and some new connections, Michigan's Iron Belle Trail extends more than 2,000 miles from the far western tip of the Upper Peninsula to Belle Isle in Detroit on a biking trail and hiking trail. The biking route travels up the east side of the state, utilizing many of the state’s existing bike paths, bike lanes, and signed, designated biking routes. The hiking route travels up the west side, utilizing sidewalks, trails, and the 1,000-mile plus North Country National Scenic Trail
Linear trails, also referred to as out-and-back, rail or destination trails, go from one point to another and follow an old railroad track or land feature. These trails typically cover long distances, are often multi-use and include opportunities for hiking, biking and more. A few of these trails may be open to snowmobiling in the winter.
