This trail features big flowing corners, tons of elevation change, and lots of playfulness!

Overview

Closed when wet or muddy. Please see the COGGS website for most current conditions.

Description

There is roughly 500' of elevation change over the course of this ~1.5 miles of trail, making it one of the most prolonged climbs/descents of the Duluth Traverse.

Upper Keene (between Skyline Pkwy and Highland St underpass):
This section is an open, not heavily wooded, bench-cut traversing the side Keene Creek's Valley. Descending, there are lots of built-in gaps, tabletops, doubles, and playful features to discover, if you're looking for them.

Middle Keene (between Highland St underpass and Westgate Blvd):
This section has lots of curves...big, tight, steep berms that keep you on the rail as you click past contour line after contour line. Midway through this section is a railroad bridge underpass as well.

Lower Keene (between Westgate Blvd and the I-35 underpass):
A short section of new singletrack shared with the Superior Hiking Trail route, but still the same characteristic machine-built singletrack. This section is somewhat 'flatter' than Middle and Upper Keene.
