Gitchi-Gami State Trail

Skating G-berry to Silver Bay

September, 2019 by rmaron

A great trail for inline skating. It is paved 10 feet wide and well maintained. There are some hills that had me breathing hard while skating up, and I was braking coming down quite a few.

The VIEW TRAIL MAP on this website is out of date. It shows the trail ending at a gravel parking lot at Beaver Bay (at the intersection of Rt 61 and Lax Lake Road). That gravel lot has been replaced by a paved lot with bathrooms and drinking fountains. Also there is now a nice smooth 10 foot wide paved bike path from there along Rt 61 to West Road, and up along West Road to the next segment of Gitchi Gami that leads to Silver Bay.

The segment from this new parking lot to Silver Bay was my favorite. Once you start up West Road it is quiet & hilly.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Nice MN Trail

September, 2019 by adventureskating.com

Skated from Duluth to Hinckley & really enjoyed this trail. Very flat, never used the brakes once. The northern 15 miles are beautifully paved and the most scenic I think, but there is still plenty of worthwhile appeal for the rest of the trail. There are some spots of rough pavement but it's manageable. The majority is average as far as pavement quality is concerned.

Water is few and far between, so plan to bring a lot. I got some in Carlton, and then had to go into Moose Lake and Finlayson to find anywhere to get water.

Duluth Lakewalk

Okay but bumpy!

August, 2019 by kjhardyman

Was an okay trail. Beautiful along the shore, but lots of foot traffic to watch for and watch for all the bumps! Lots of picnic areas and benches. Unfortunately, it does not go to the lift bridge now, it just suddenly ends and is being renovated. Going north, less traffic, lots of flowers, but also lots of street crossings.

Duluth Lakewalk

Renovations

August, 2019 by rkberger

Was our first time riding on this trail. Had no clue from any websites that they were renovating the trail. Very unclear signage. Some was still nicely paved along lake shore but majority was on busy highway or sidewalks where nobody trims their bushes. Won't be going back anytime soon.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Needs repair

July, 2019 by daveauchter24

The trail from Hinckley to Sandstone is in dire need of resurfacing. Many parallel and perpendicular cracks have widened and pose a safety hazard. There are also numerous places along the trail from Finlayson to Matowa where wash outs have occurred and it’s been a couple years and still no blacktop ....just gravel. This beautiful trail is not getting the attention it needs because no one is demanding it.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Beautiful ride

July, 2019 by djwolter

I started in Finlayson and rode to Moose Lake and back. This is a well-maintained and very pristine trail. Beautiful views and not a lot of traffic. There is quite a bit in Moose Lake in terms of food and beverages, so I’d recommend a stop there!

Gandy Dancer Trail - Southern Section

Nice trail, but a bit dull.

June, 2019 by mbollom

I did the ten mile from Danbury to Webster. The trail surface (pressed dirt and gravel) was fine for my touring bike tires, but would not work for thinner road bike tires. Like all rails-to-trails routes, the grade was very gradual, passing through a mixture of deciduous and pine forests. There were also a few larger lakes off to the side of the trail. But overall, this very straight trail was just a bit dull. The better part of the ride was returning to Danbury from Webster along Country Roads FF and F. These roads were well paved and had almost no traffic. The also afforded better views of the north woods country side.

Tri-County Corridor Trail

MIxed-use with challenges

September, 2018 by estimatehub

This trail is on the looser end of the limestone bed trails. It's open to ATV's, so the surface is not as hard-packed as many. I would recommend mountain bike tires, but we did a stretch on hybrid size and did ok. The Ashland end is great, with pavement all the way and a nice loop that puts you along Lake Superior for some great views.

Osaugie Trail

Very scenic trail

September, 2018 by estimatehub

This is a fun trail if you like urban and scenic mixed together. Lots to see and explore along the way. Best signage on a trail we've ever seen. Take time to see the Bong Museum, great displays and history of the area. The bridge onto Barkers Island is a nice connection and a safe, relaxed place to ride.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Carlton to Duluth is super

August, 2018 by normanbowers

Carlton to Duluth has been repaved and is one of the smoothest trails I have encountered. Leaving Duluth and heading up hill toward Carlton there is only one road crossing in 9 miles so this is a great trail for families and serious riders. No water or restrooms.

Western Waterfront Trail

Rough Ride due to loose rock

August, 2018 by normanbowers

Surface is 1" crushed rock, a lot of it is loose. Fine for mountain bikers, but not a ride for road bikes or kids. Really this is a walking path.

Duluth Lakewalk

Trail to Brighton Beach

August, 2018 by normanbowers

Downtown is always crowded, but crowd drops off rapidly as you leave downtown and go north toward Brighton Beach (60th Street). For another good ride walk bike across lift bridge and ride Lake/Michigan to end of street, about 4 miles. Just one stop sign in 4 miles, so can ride as fast as you want. Traffic drops off a few blocks from the lift bridge.
