The Iron County Outdoor Recreation Enthusiasts (ICORE) wants to create a new trail segment to connect the towns of Hurley and Montreal. Hurley currently has another trail that links several other communities, and crosses from Wisconsin into Michigan.
“It’s a very scenic route,” says ICORE board member Ian Shackleford. “It includes two historic railroad bridges and it’s right in the hearts of our communities. We think it would just be a wonderful asset to build that trail and connect over into Michigan and the Iron Belle Trail.”
If the city of Hurley is approved for the Knowles-Nelson grant, they will be able to discuss buying the land for the three-mile trail expansion from the Canadian National Railroad.
