“A short, over-the-hump section of flow trail.”
— Matt Goodman
Smooth and wide surface, fun berms and short distance out and back. Swimming and fishing ponds at the parking lot.
Closed when wet or muddy and during spring thaw. See coggs.com for closures
This is a continuation of the Duluth Traverse, connecting Observation Road (paved road) with Twin Ponds (city park). The nearest parking is at the Twin Ponds parking lot.
From the parking lot climb the bermed switchback to a great overlook at the top. Note the rocks and rollers to use as launchpads on the way back if you want to do an out-and-back.
The high point on this trail offers some of the biggest views in town, it's not called Observation Hill for nothing!
The last 1,000' of trail is a fast slalom through the woods down to the road.
Between the view and the fun features on the trail, this section should not not be skipped when riding the Enger Trail - Duluth Traverse
The Enger Trail - Duluth Traverse
connects to this parking lot. It's located on the other side of the lower pond (next to the pedestrian crossing dam).
