Southeast Gilbert in northeast Minnesota, the 1,200 acre Iron Range OHV Recreation Area (aka Gilbert OHV Site) has routes open to ATV riding. About half of the site is mineland, including inactive iron ore pits, ore stockpiles and tailings basins. This area was mined until 1981. The landscape has been dramatically altered by the extraction of iron ore, creating sizeable lakes, ore stockpiles, overburden piles, tailings basins and impoundments. Much of the mined area has revegetated naturally. The northern portion of the site will contain the majority of proposed OHV activity.

Overall, Iron Range OHV Recreation Area is the 2nd most popular ATV riding trail of all 33 ATV trails in Minnesota.
