The Miners Memorial Heritage Park (MMHP) encompasses the former iron ore mining locations within the City of Ironwood. The discovery of these mines resulted in the establishment of the City of Ironwood in the latter part of the 19th century. The last iron ore mine in the City of Ironwood closed in 1966. The Friends of Miners Memorial Heritage Park was created to promote, maintain, and develop Miners Memorial Heritage Park within the mining areas of Ironwood. Whether hiking, snowshoeing, or mountain biking, the Miners Memorial Heritage Park provides a beautiful natural setting to enjoy both the past history of Ironwood and its evolving stature as a recreation destination. Starting this summer of 2020, construction begins on a full series of graded mountain biking trails in the park and three new trail heads with parking.
