Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Oh happy day!

July, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from Carlton to duluth. All downhill. Beautiful views, great scenery, lots of mature trees, all paved. Just a lot of fun. Would do the trail again. Only downfall? A few more signs, especially when nearing the big town...no real trailhead and no sign stating you were at the end of the trail.

Gandy Dancer Trail - Southern Section

Hot day, not so hot trail.

June, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from Webster to halfway to danbury, uphill... No wind, high temps, high humidity. Lots of black flies. Couldn't stop for bugs would have a field day enjoying my sweat. Bailed on a side road. Started again at Luck and hoping to have better downhill luck, went to Milltown. Much better as it was not uphill, but still had limited shade. Sag wagon/re-supply husband couldn't find TH asked locals "where is the gandy dancer bike trail head" and no-one knew. Probably should have asked where the snowmobile trail was...maybe in better conditions would I try again. Or use my time on others trails.

Osaugie Trail

started at the Bong Museum and rode out to Wisconsin Point and back. 20 mile round trip, a little bumpy at times but very nice.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

at Jay Cooke park

June, 2018 by dadandthegang

I parked at Cooke park HQ and rode the spur to the main trail. I went south about 4 miles to where the trail closed then north of the spur about 6 miles (21 round trip). Pavement is mostly good with some sections freshly paved and most of it having some patches. Only a few sections had rough spots, but still very rideable. Being an old railroad track the slopes are gentle.

Gitchi-Gami State Trail

Near Gooseberry

June, 2018 by dadandthegang

I was able to do about a 5 mile section at south e d before cold rain came in. Trail Is challenging with plenty of hills. It was a pleasure to ride. Here and there roots and plants are poking through the asphalt, but it does not take the joy from the ride.

Willard Munger State Trail (Matthew Lourey State Trail)

Pretty scenery, not great for the silent sports

March, 2018 by william.capecchi

I ran 7.5 miles from the southern trailhead in an effort to get off the pavement and into the woods. The landscape was beautiful, but the going was tough. This was partly my fault since 95% of the trail was still covered in snow/ice, but this trail is primarily snowmobile/ATV use (I passed a couple ATV groups who nodded politely as they passed, no doubt thinking I was crazy or lost or both). The portions of trail not snow covered were rutted and uneven making even these stretches difficult.
Overall not great for trail running. I'll experiment with other sections, but unless you have a fat bike I wouldn't recommend this lower section.

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.
