Superior Hiking Trail

Two very different sections of the SHT, both great!

June, 2021 by ebaker6101

We hiked two sections of the SHT at the beginning of June, the first was in Duluth and went up about 1.5 miles to Enger Tower by way of Twin Ponds. The first section was a little iffy, there seemed to be some homeless camps set up at the bottom of the trail, but they didn't bother us. The rest of the trail was very well labeled, and had boards across the marshy parts.

The second section we did started up north about an hour, from Beaver Bay to Silver Bay. It was a beautiful landscape, and I almost felt like I was hiking up in the Pacific Northwest. This section of the trail had lots of elevation gain and loss, which made it more interesting for being a Minnesota/Wisconsin type hike. Our favorite section of the trail was at the beginning, where you follow the Beaver River and a few places with falls. We saw lots of waterfowl (a momma Grebe and 10 babies was the highlight), and even a beaver out nibbling on logs. The later sections of the trail had some really great views of Silver Bay and we stopped for lunch up at the top. Definitely watch out for ticks though, we stopped for lunch and I caught two climbing up my boots, we managed to shake out another in the car ride back to Duluth.

Osaugie Trail

Osaugie Trail is good alternative to the road in Superior

June, 2021 by ebaker6101

We did the Osaugie Trail at the beginning of June, and it was great because we picked it up right near Barkers Island and were able to take it all the way down to Moccasin Mike, which takes you out to the Wisconsin side sandbar. The trail in Superior was in decent condition, though the one wooden bridge you have to cross is sinking a little bit, had a hard landing on one side.

The Osaugie trail does blend into the Tri County Corridor Trail, which isn't quite bike friendly, since it shares the space with ATVs. I've got 2" tires on my gravel bike and had no issues, but my parents had hybrid/commuter style tires and had to ride along the edge for the mile or so past Loons Landing until the trail turned into half asphalt and half gravel.

The trail was very well marked with mileage, areas of interest in Superior at each road crossing, and indications with which trails were joining together.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Great experience on Willard Munger!

June, 2021 by ebaker6101

We did the Willard Munger State Trail at the beginning of June and it was a fantastic trail! The first section coming out of Duluth was absolutely beautiful, there was some damage to the trail, but it was all clearly marked with spray paint so there was no danger of hitting any pot holes or cracks unless you weren't paying attention. The beginning had the most elevation gain and loss of the entire trail, but you barely even notice it. The gorge outside of Carlton was super scenic, and the rest of the trail down to Hinckley had tons of wildlife (swans, grouse, guinea fowl, deer, etc.). The lower sections of the trail starting near Barnum were definitely hot later in the day, and tree cover started to disappear, but overall this trail was excellently laid out and a ton of fun to ride!

Osaugie Trail

Needs maintenance

June, 2021 by ejroadfeldt

This trail has seen better days. The first section from the Bong Museum to Loon Landing is decent, but a portion of the trail after that is soft gravel awaiting new asphalt, and I came across one biker who gave up and turned around, and another biker who lost control of her tricycle and crashed down an embankment. However, if you ride through the gravel (or take side streets) and venture down Moccasin Mike Rd. to Wisconsin Point (in light traffic), you will not be disappointed! Great scenic ride. Smooth road.

Mesabi Trail

Hills more hills & curves

December, 2020 by timbee205_tl

I've ridden this trail several times in the past. This August '20 I took a shuttle from Hibbing to south of Eveleth, not doing a long out & back as usual especially considering the many hills. It was well worth it & would do it again next time when more eastern pavement is in.

I camped in Grand Rapids at the city park which is where the western end starts. Avoid when cars are racing nearby--awful noise for hours. The next day I went east almost to Hibbing--very steep hills. Close to GR I took a branch trail that led to a ball field--ok but disjointed.

All in all a very unique trail for MN where most trails are relatively flat & straight.

Mesabi Trail

Stunningly beautiful fall foliage

September, 2020 by CarieSmith

The trail from Giants Ridge to just south of Embarrass is in great condition, is fun and challenging with the curves and elevation gain, and has spectacular scenery especially in late September.

The trail from Giants Ridge to Aurora and around St. James lake is similarly fun and beautiful.

We travel from central Illinois (over 650 miles) every fall in order to ride these sections of the trail and it is well worth the drive. We highly recommend it.

Gitchi-Gami State Trail

Gooseberry to Silver Bay and back

September, 2020 by mjbrown218

Wow, this trail is stunning and fun! Some sections offered beautiful expansive views of Lake Superior, while others were more forested. Lots of hills and twists and turns made for a fun and varied ride. We started at the very beginning of the trail in Gooseberry, which takes you through the state park. We went on a Monday and the section through the state park was mildly busy, but as soon as we got outside the park we hardly saw anyone.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Great Trail

August, 2020 by thebecks2018

We started in Carlton and biked 14 miles Round trip to Buffalo House Bar in Duluth where we stopped for beer. Love this easy flat trail, with some slight inclines along the way.

Western Waterfront Trail

Bugs for DAYS

July, 2020 by davidleex23

I took my wife and 9 month baby. We were able to take some great photos on the two small docks we came across along the trial. The trial is labeled wheelchair accessible so we were expecting a baby stroller friendly trial, but it was a pretty bumpy ride for our girl. I wouldn't recommend a stroller as the trial is mostly crushed rocks. The trial is scenic as we trek through, but was ended shortly as there were way too many insects (mayfly) swarming us. It was relentless, constant smacking in the face with these one inch long bugs (almost 3 inch including tail). We went in mid July and point of entry was from Pulaski Street. Either it was just that area or maybe during that time the Mayflys were out in force that season just come prepared for this scenario if bugs don't bug you
