Apple Blossom Trail Iron County Fair Iron County Historical Museum Iron River RV Park U.P. Pro Rodeo

Apple Blossom Trail

Begins on Brady Avenue in Caspian across from the Iron County Museum. This restored walking/biking trail along the banks of the Iron River was originally the major corridor for the rail lines that hauled thousands of tons of iron ore from local mines to the steel mills of Chicago and Indiana. See the site of Harvey Mellon’s discovery of iron ore along this route in 1851, when only one settler lived here. Local high school students continue to contribute and develop sites and natural history signage on this historic route.  This trail is also one of the main points on the Heritage Trail system. Heading in a northeasterly direction from Caspian, the paved trail proceeds exactly two miles to Genesee street in downtown Iron River. For more information, contact the Caspian City Hall at 906-265-2514.

Iron County Fair

In late August, local talk turns to the dwindling days of summer, the daily hunting season countdown, predictions about the upcoming winter and the Iron County Fair. This four-day event invites Iron County residents and visitors alike to explore a wide variety of activities at the county fairgrounds in Iron River. At night, you can take the entire family to the 4x4 truck pull or the always fun, demolition derby.
