“Rolling flow trail with a remote feel.”— Matt Goodman
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
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.
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).
