Apple Blossom Trail & Heritage Trail

The paved trail (wheelchair accessible) starts across the road from the Iron County Museum in Caspian and weaves its way through areas of beautiful and historical Iron County.  The bike path ends at Pentoga Park.  It travels along the Iron River and near the site of the original railroad line that carried iron ore from the area.  It travels through Caspian to Gaastra and along the original roadbed on 424 to Pentoga Park. The site of Harvey Mellen’s discovery of iron ore in 1851 is on the route. Among the scenic views are the abandoned mine quarry stocked with trout and a view of a small waterfall on the Iron River. There is also a sign at the trailhead speaking the “language” of dogs.
