The Iron Belle Trail is the proposed trail system connecting Belle Isle Park in Detroit to Ironwood in the western Upper Peninsula. The trail traverses pristine forests, rivers, parks, and charming towns. The trail consists of two routes - one for biking and one for hiking. The biking route is 791 miles long and is approximately 60% complete. The hiking route is 1,273 miles long and is 72% complete. NEMCOG provides staff support to facilitate the development of the Iron Belle Trail biking route in Northeast Michigan.

The MDNR and the MI Fitness Foundation have created a fundraising page for the Iron Belle Trail through Crowdrise.com!  Please click here if you would like to donate to this general fund for helping communities in Michigan develop the Iron Belle Trail.
