This is the easier, more accessible portion of Brewer Park trails. It is still very fun and gorgeous! This trail is also part of the Duluth Traverse singletrack route from one end of Duluth to the other.
Coming up from the tunnel underneath Haines Road toward the intersection with Home Brew
, it is a substantial climb. Heading back down, however, it's a beautifully flowing trail, featuring big banked turns.
From its easternmost (lower) intersection with Home Brew
, Lollygagger snakes its way southwest, winding through deep boreal and hardwood forest. It's flowing, rolling, machine-built singletrack with moderate climbing. On the way down to Haines Road, the numerous rollers provide smiles for beginners and experts alike.
After some more climbing, you'll pass the upper or western intersection with Home Brew
. Turn left to head back down to Haines road on Home Brew
, or continue on a few hundred yards of gently climbing trail with a few technical b-line options.
The far west end descends quickly with a few bermed switchbacks to Skyline Pkwy (paved road).
