Iron Belle Trail Downriver

Michigan's Premiere Trail Going from Belle Isle to Iron Mountain

The Iron Belle Trail is Michigan’s showcase trail that touches hundreds of municipalities and crosses through 48 different Michigan counties. Using existing trails, networks and some new connections, the 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 hiking route goes through ten Downriver Linked Greenways communities along 25 miles of sidewalks and sidepath trails. After leaving Detroit, hikers on the Iron Belle Trail will pass through the communities of River Rouge, Ecorse, Wyandotte, Riverview, Trenton, Grosse Ile Township, Gibraltar, Brownstown Township, Rockwood and Flat Rock before exiting Downriver on their way towards Ann Arbor, the 1000 mile long North Country National Scenic Trail and on to Ironwood in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
