Hull Rust Mine View


Hull Rust Mine View is temporarily closed for relocation and people should check for updates.

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.
