This park is home to Minnesota's oldest iron ore mine, where visitors can learn about how mining shaped the history and culture of the Iron Range. Travel a half-mile below the earth's surface, just the way miners used to, and tour the deepest area mined. Explore the dry house, drill shop, crusher house and engine house, and take the boardwalk past one of the deepest open mine pits. Don't miss the hiking trails that take you through a northern hardwood conifer forest, past the famous Soudan Iron Formation!
Directions: Take U.S. Highway 169 towards Ely and follow the signs. Soudan is located 2 miles east of Tower, MN.
