Osaugie Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Osaugie Trail leads users past various landmarks along Superior’s waterfront, including the S.S. Meteor Whaleback Ship Museum, Barker's Island, and the Burlington Ore Dock, where the Edmund Fitzgerald set out on its last ill-fated voyage in 1975.

Located at the trail’s western end, the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center features several exhibits about the flying ace, as well as a real Lockheed P-38 Lightning aircraft. From the opposite end of the trail, cyclists and pedestrians can travel on-road to reach scenic Wisconsin Point. The natural peninsula features miles of beautiful beaches, a working lighthouse and stunning vistas of nearby Duluth, Minnesota.

The rail-trail continues eastward from Superior to Ashland—a distance of over 60 miles—as the unpaved Tri-County Corridor Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Osaugie Trail is available at Bear Creek Park on Moccasin Mike Road and Harbor View Park on E. 2nd Street/US 53. Additional parking can be found where the trail intersects Marina Drive.
