Many of the Park's Heritage sites offer hiking trails. Remember to stay on trails, keeping in mind that you may encounter uneven ground or tripping hazards. Respect private property and leave artifacts as you find them.
Contact the specific site for more information:
Adventure Mining Company
Adventure Mine has approximately 4 miles of biking and hiking trails around the former mine site, leading through old mine building foundations, and historic pits on the site.
Central Mine at Keweenaw County Historical Society
In addition to several miner's homes on site, two hiking trails opened in 2005. The trails are 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile long through the woods, providing views of several house foundations, the site of the school house, as well as a magnificent view of the valley from the top of the upper rock pile.
Fort Wilkins Historic State Park
Running around the park, roughly parallel to the park boundary is a two-mile trail that provides great views of Lake Fanny Hooe and Lake Superior.
Above ground at the Delaware, walking trails take you past the ruins of the original pump house and hoist house from the 1870s. You will also see mining equipment and a collection of antique engines on display.
Old Victoria including North Country Trail
Follow the North Country National Scenic Trail from Old Victoria to the site of the Victoria Mine. Gaze across 13 miles of Ontonagon County from the rock pile, where you can see to Lake Superior. Another mile and a half brings you to Lookout Mountain - or you can continue your journey west to the Norwich Mine, Trap Hills, Porcupine Mountains and eventually North Dakota.
Visitors can walk the former rail grades to find numerous ruins and buildings, including the Roundhouse and #6 Shafthouse site.
