Tri-County Corridor Trail

A Rough Ride!

September, 2022 by garysaki

A plus of the trail is that is stays dry unless there are heavy rains. Lots of towns for food, gas, etc. However, it is "washboardy" and the gravel is loose in many areas. From a Motorcycle perspective, it is not much fun. I understand most railroad trails are straight and level, so if it's not "challenging" with some curves and hills, then they could at least get some gravel, a grader and roller out there and maintain it better!

DWP Trail

9/19/2022 Beautiful day

September, 2022 by dcampobasso

We biked the DWP from Becks Road parking lot to Spirit Mountain then hopped on the Munger trail for the return route. I liked this route because it’s all down hill on the DWP which is dirt. Then back on the Munger all up hill because it’s paved. Trails were both in good condition & not too busy.

Mesabi Trail

Another section done.

September, 2022 by mwskibike

Had the chance the other day to ride from Chisholm to Kinney and back. Section from Chisholm to Buhl was much smoother than Hibbing to Chisholm, but had a couple of steep hills. The section from Buhl to Kinney was VERY rough. Be sure to stop and read the sign by the water treatment plant about the town of Fraser - interesting facts.


Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

very scenic

September, 2022 by allyn.dana

Agree with last reviewer however this trail, besides there being beautiful scenery, has some interesting features like root cracks and bubbles and in some spray painted areas, big trail wide divets. I could never tell if we were on an incline though. Based on the last review the ride back to the West Duluth trailhead should have been a downward slope but it was oddly not. We rode to the Jay Cooke park cutoff before turning back so we could see the waterfalls and the swinging bridge. The trail to the park was not well marked though so use your TrailLink app to make sure you don’t pass it.

Mesabi Trail

First time

August, 2022 by mwskibike

First time user on this trail. Road from Chisholm to Hibbing and back. Pretty rough in spots. Glad we had e-bikes - lots of hills and we are getting old! Hubby saw some bear scat. We saw signs saying that a bike pass was needed, but no information about where to get one or how much. Never saw anything about it on this site, so were unprepared.

Mesabi Trail

Awesome trail

August, 2022 by kackman_11

Spent a week in Grand Rapids and biked this trail with my husband for the first time and had a wonderful time. Enjoyed the scenery which was outstanding some of the trail needs a little bit of work but overall was a great trail and a great place to bike

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Rose the Duluth End

July, 2022 by lifeinthewoods

We left from the Willard Munger trail head in West Duluth. We rode just a few miles to the St. Louis River bridge. Very beautiful. The Duluth end of the trail is very scenic. It is also a good place to start and finish your ride. The climb heading west is a few hundred feet in elevation, so your ride back is a piece of cake.

C.J. Ramstad/North Shore State Trail

Amazing snowmobile trail that the local clubs help keep groomed. Great views of northern Minnesota!

Soo Line Trail - Southern Route

Paved Portion from Onamia to Isle

June, 2022 by mboerner2

The 11-mile paved part from Onamia to Isle is rough due to freeze/thaw cracking, every 30 feet is a bone-jarring crack and some big bumps occasionally. Also the paved trail is scattered here and there from gravel from the adjoining ATV gravel trail. Nice and flat through the wooded prairie and bog. 2-mile Section from Waukon to Isle is better pavement. Scared up a huge black bear which surprised me but the bear ran the other way. Best with mountain bike but doable on road bike, bring a spare tube.

Willard Munger State Trail (Matthew Lourey State Trail)

Southern end

April, 2022 by tomeggum

It’s neat that our state buys trail right-of-way like this, but this end is rough with lots of ponded water this past Spring weekend. We gave up before we got to the the Million Dollar Bridge.

Gandy Dancer Trail - Northern Section

Gandy Dancer - Easy terrain

March, 2022 by nealm68_tl

I have been up there quite a few times parking in the area just off the trail in Danbury, WI. The area just north across the bridge has a few trails that wander around in the area and in a few miles, you go through Marksville, MN. The trails and forest are full of cabins and camping/hunting shacks then the farther north you get it's mostly flat and new growth forest. While not challenging to ride, it's a nice area to go when you get a new machine. The few people I have met were really friendly and seemed to be fine with the utv's going through.

Duluth Lakewalk

very uncomfortable ride

September, 2021 by pambelknap1

I have never ridden such a badly-maintained bike trail as this. The views from Canal Park are beautiful if you pull off but on the trail you have to be alert to pedestrians (even while next to the pedestrian walkway since people was on the bike way as well), and ongoing cracks, bumps and potholes. Words cannot describe how bad it is. Plus there are no instructions signs or maps along the way. Very, very disappointing. no signage
