Need to Know

This trail has been closed to uphill traffic. Please use only as downhill trail and keep in mind it is still open to other downhill users.

Description

It can be access by Lester River Trail or riding up Seven Bridges Rd.

You get some great views of Gazebo Falls on Amity Creek as you ride through beautiful tall pines. After the falls, you'll cross the snowmobile trail and skirt along Seven Bridges Road for a bit.

This section gets relatively rocky/rooty, especially nearest the northern end. There aren't however, any prolonged technical sections. Just one or two rocky spots that beginner riders can easily step through in a couple of strides.

When you get the chance to safely do so, don't forget to look down and take in the views of the Amity Creek ravine as you go.

The entrance at the top of Amity East is at it's intersection with the Lester River Trail - Duluth Traverse. From here, go left toward the Hawk Ridge Trail and Amity West Trail, or go right to descend the Lester River Trail - Duluth Traverse back to the park where you started.

Great trail, narrow at times, more ups then downs. Mostly uphill till you hit amity west then downhill from there. Has a few roots and rock ledges.…
