Hibbing, Minnesota is the site of the largest open pit iron ore mine in the world. It is 8 miles long by 3.5 miles wide. Stand at the edge of the pit and see the "Grand Canyon of the North." The awe-inspiring view is often accompanied by trucks and shovels working the pit several hundred feet below. Observation deck offers a truly "birds-eye" view. Onsite park features mining equipment visitors can explore. Group and Bus tours are welcome.
The Hull Rust Mine View is located at the dead end of Third Avenue East, a short drive from Hibbing Tourist Seniors Center.
Take the Howard Street exit from Hwy 169. Go west on Howard Street to Third Avenue. Take a right. Follow Third Avenue past the Greyhound Bus Museum and through "Old Hibbing." Notice foundations of "The Town That Moved," and interpretive kiosk.
