      Iron Mountain looks to please off-roaders

      The City of Iron Mountain is proposing an off-road vehicle trail connection through the city, hoping it will benefit the local economy and please the off-roaders.

      The proposed trail would link Lehman Avenue to Traders Mine Road. By opening up Lehman Ave., the off-roaders can then connect to the already existing ATV trail.

      Those living on Lehman Ave., however, are expressing some concern about opening the entire avenue for off-roaders.

      "We're really against having the 4-wheelers come up to this and back to the trail instead of cutting across where it's accessible," said resident Ron Jouppi.

      The city manager says they are considering alternate routes due to some of the residents' concerns.
