C.J. Ramstad/North Shore State Trail

Old trail - not accessable

August, 2017 by holger.fuessler

This was pretty diapponting - I tried to access the trail from the end coming from Duluth. The first entry was not possible as there was gate saying "Private Property - Restricted".
I tried to access at two later points but found the trail totally overgrown with plants - no chance to ride. Probably this was a good trail in the past but it is not anymore. After 1 hour of trying I gave up.
No idea if that trail is better in other parts, this probably only covers the first 5-10 miles - but here it does not really exist.

Gitchi-Gami State Trail

Not a scenic as I expected

July, 2017 by krbailleucpa

I rode the Lutsen-to-Tofte section. It mostly runs alongside the highway and crosses driveways every few feet, so there's not of beautiful scenery. The trail is in good shape and well signposted.
Even though the lake is nearby, there aren't many sections when you even see it because of the trees and lakefront property between the trail and the shore.
On an overcast but pleasant summer afternoon, it was nearly deserted.

Duluth Lakewalk

Canal Park is Crowded

July, 2017 by krbailleucpa

I wasn't expecting to ride this at all, but I checked in to the Hampton Inn at Canal Park, looked out the window, and there it was. At that end of the trail on a summer evening, there were crowds strolling up and down both the boardwalk that parallels the trail, and the trail itself, making it necessary to brake frequently to avoid running over people. The location and trail condition were great: perhaps on a different day or time it'd be possible to get up to speed and keep going.

Wild Rivers State Trail

Great trail!

Saunders State Trail

No

June, 2017 by wolfhavenfarm

I biked this trail from the Wisconsin line to the end. Wooded and very nice scenery. The surface was thickly covered with heavy ballast rock. Some places it was a foot deep of loose rock. When the trail turns north towards Superior it starts to get usable. There's a tiny trail ends sign at a road crossing but the trail continues on. This section is not maintained and is the only usable section. Turned into a nice rideable section but ends at the next road crossing on Ames Road. Not usable for hiking, biking or horseback riding. A waste of a good rail to trail section that could link Superior to the Soo Line trails and the Munger Trail.

Soo Line Trail - Southern Route

Mixed bag

June, 2017 by wolfhavenfarm

I started near Royalton on a fully loaded plus tire bike. Morrison counties portion is good trail of smaller gravel. Lots of open farmland. Mille Lacs county the trail turned nasty with bigger ballast and rough. Onamia to Isle is paved. I stayed at Father Hennepin State Park in Isle. Stocked up on snacks at the small grocery store. Farmland changed to wetlands. Carlton County the trail was good again. A couple miles of off the rail bed trail with mud and hills. A fun distraction. I stayed another night at Moose Lake State Park outside of town. There to the Wisconsin line is good trail. Wisconsin line to the end is horrible. Thick layer of ballast rock. A foot deep in places making it harder to pedal through than sand. All across the trail the road crossings, bridges and generally the trail through wetlands were very rough. I rode late June and the deer flies were out in abundance as was a wide variety of wildlife. My trip was mid week so the atv traffic was very light. The trash cans along the trail are full of beer cans and the posted speed limit is 50mph. I was on a week long ride and was loaded with gear, the plus tire was the right choice for me.

One of the most beautiful trails I have been on. You will encounter lots of wildlife on this trail. The scenery is superb!

Looks like a four wheeler trail, not a good hike when the sun is out as there is no shade anywhere!

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Duluth to Moose Lake R/T

May, 2016 by javb76

Really awesome and scenic climb leaving Duluth and great trail to Carlton. After carleton the trail flattens and the scenery becomes less dramatic but still an excellent ride. overall the trail is in really great shape and a lot of fun. the day we rode is was 35 degrees and flurries (in mid may). We stayed at the Willard Munger Inn which provided super easy access to the trail. Def recommend and can you tell you it was worth the 7.5 hr drive from Chicago

Gitchi-Gami State Trail

Very nice trail with great views of Lake Superior

September, 2015 by cople001

We rode this trail in September of 2015. Very nice and well maintained trails. There are several steep climbs both ways as you approach Split Rock Lighthouse. Be careful on the downhills as they're some serious switch backs and sharp turns. They're are numerous signs warning you of these as you approach. We're looking forward to biking more of the North Shore next Summer.
