A backwoods singletrack delight! Machine-built, but with a few subtle nods to old-school trails.

Description

Compared to other new singletrack in Duluth (i.e., the Duluth Traverse), this trail is just slightly more old-school. This one has a narrower tread, tighter trees, fewer berms, occasional rock in the middle of the trail, and some flat/off-camber turns. This trail has a fantastic deep-woods feel to it.

In total, this trail is just shy of five miles and the north end is roughly 300' higher (elevation) than the south end. Most of the elevation change occurs in the southern half of the trail, with the northern half feeling flatter.

The southern end contains numerous sensational hairpins where the trail skirts out, traversing along a steep hillside, to the head of a ridgeline only to whip the rider nearly 180° and back along the next steep hillside.

From end to end, this trail flows easily along, bringing the rider from mature stands of White Pines, Hemlocks, and Cedars, and through big leafy Birch and Aspen groves. You'd never have a clue that you're within a city!

Ojibwe trail name: "Akiing Anishinaabe" (meaning: indigenous land Anishinaabe).

Probably most enjoyable as a climb (going from Fond du Lac to Becks road). Dec 22, 2016
Probably my favorite trail in Duluth. It feels the most remote, it's not too buff, and tucked in close to the trees. I like to park at the bottom, hit some of the other loops, and roll on back home through the woods. May 9, 2017
