This year, there are an additional 10 miles of trails (The Rim, The Zen, and Tough Mama trails new in 2021) bringing the total mileage to 25 miles.

Chisholm, Minnesota is barely a dot on the map. But this small town on the Mesabi Iron Range of Minnesota once provided the ore to build the tanks and planes of World War II and skyscrapers of New York. Chisholm helped build America and the people of the town prospered. But as time went on, the demand for Chisholm’s ore declined. Although mining continues to thrive in this region, the people of Chisholm are looking to reclaim this abandoned landscape of the past. Now, the community and the industry that built this town are banding together to revitalize a forgotten piece of America. Can Chisholm make the leap from mining town to outdoor capital?
