Iron County ATV Trail System

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Alt Names

Iron County, Iron Horse Trail, Schomberg Park, Four Seasons ATV Trail System, Laymans Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This trail system offers over 200 miles of ATV trails that offer numerous scenic views, beautiful waterfalls, lakes and rivers.

Camping and direct trail access to the central part of the trail system can be found at Schomberg Park, which has 14 sites with electric hookups, restroom and shower facilities and a spray wash station. An adjacent day use staging area can also be found here where there are loading ramps and extra space for parking. The northern part of the trail system can be accessed at Saxon Harbor Campground, a full service facility that overlooks Lake Superior. The campground offers 43 sites with electric and water hookups, coin operated showers, changing rooms, swimming beach, playground equipment and access to boat ramps.

Both campgrounds usually open for the season from around mid May through mid October but exact dates vary. Reservations can be made by contacting the Iron County Forestry Department but there is a $10 service fee that applies.

Various special events are hosted throughout the year which includes a Memorial Weekend ATV Rally and a Pumpkin Run Rally in October.

The trails themselves are open most of the year but do close for spring thaw which is usually around late March through early May. The region is also home to two of the largest waterfalls in the state and was even featured on CNN News as one of the top ten waterfalls to see in the United States. For current trail conditions and area information about the many waterfalls contact the Hurley Area Chamber of Commerce at (715) 561-4334 or the 24-hour FUNN-line at (866) 345-3866.
