The Miners Memorial Heritage Park (MMHP) encompasses the former iron ore mining locations within the City of Ironwood (locally known as the caves area). 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. Great for nordic skiing!
Wolverine Nordic is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization with the mission to preserve and promote nordic skiing and lifelong physical fitness on the Gogebic Range of the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Northeastern Wisconsin.
Since 1968, when the Ironwood community roared to life with the first-ever oval snowmobile race at the Gogebic County Fairgrounds, snowmobile racing has become an established sport in the Western U.P. In 2015, Ironwood hosted the TLR Cup series, where the world's best ice oval racers met at the fast and historic 1/2 mile track in Ironwood.
