Community invited to ski heritage trail Saturday

NEGAUNEE – The Iron Ore Heritage Recreation Authority Administrator Carol Fulsher will be leading a group ski Saturday on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail from Negaunee to Ishpeming and back.

The public is being invited to join her for the ski, which begins at 11 a.m. at the Negaunee trailhead, across from Negaunee Senior Center, and is being held in recognition of National Winter Trails Day.

“This is an impromptu group ski event to get people outdoors after some bitterly cold days and learn more about the heritage trail,” Fulsher said in a press release. “We want people to use the trail in all seasons and this portion is open to cross country skiing in the winter.

“The trail is fairly flat so it’s an excellent trail for beginners and for those who feel uncomfortable with big hills. We’ll ski to the Brownstone Buildings in Ishpeming and turn and come back.”
