Rolling flow trail with a remote feel.

Matt Goodman

Overview

Closed when wet or during spring thaw. Please see COGGS website for updates on trail conditions and closures.
Family Friendly: Fairly smooth and no big climbs. But, there are some gravelly or loose rock sections. Lester River Trail and Upper Cathedral are still a bit easier for young children with little mtb experience.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This section yields little elevation change overall, but rolls nicely all the way along. It has more of a 'deep woods' feeling to it: no panoramic viewpoints overlooking the city or lake and no rocky ledges. Instead, the track meanders through pine and maple forests on the east side, aspen and oak forests near the middle, and lower wetland shrubs on the west end where it skirts a beaver pond along Amity Creek.

This section is well-suited for families riding with little shredders who are still learning the ropes.

NOTE: the next Duluth Traverse section of the to the east ("Hawk Ridge Trail") is not well-suited for beginners, but it can be easily bypassed by riding eastward on Snively Trail until you come to the bridge over Amity Creek at the top Seven Bridges Rd (paved).
