Description

This trail forms the western terminus of the Duluth Traverse, and is a wide, smooth dirt flow trail with great views.

Starting from Chambers Grove Park, you ride along a bench, high above the St. Louis River. Once you hit the gullies, the trail starts to venture further from the river, climbing up in big switchbacks, with some short descents in between. The final push up to Hwy 210 is a steady climb, but the grade remains moderate. You'll reach an intersection with the Loki Trail, keep left to continue on the Duluth Traverse up to Hwy 210.

If coming from the top (Valley West / Hwy 210), you'll start down Loki and keep right at the (only) split, in the middle of some fun fast berms. The descent after the split is some of the fastest trail in town, offering great opportunities for small airs. Keep your speed up, and you'll be able to crest many of the small ups on your way down to Chambers Grove Park.
