One trail to rule them all.
The dream that is coming true! Since this grandiose idea was dreamed up (probably in a local bar) it has gained an incredible amount of traction in a relatively short time. Grants have been secured allowing COGGS to purchase plenty of materials for boardwalks and even enough for two mini excavators and a canycom. The city of Duluth is fully on board and volunteers have been crawling out of the wood work! To get a better idea of the scope of the project visit the COGGS site.
Summer 2017 update. Another 3 miles were added to Mission Creek including nearly 2 miles of Expert level black trails. Nearly 2 miles have been added from western exit from Chester Bowl extending behind The College of St. Scholastica heading towards the antenna farm. New trail is currently being built in Hartley as well.
Summer 2016 update. Another 19 miles has been added to the entire system!! 9 miles of freshies in Mission Creek. Nearly 5 miles connecting Brewer to Spirit Mountain! Enger park is now connected to Piedmont (nearly 4 miles worth of new trail)! The DT also now extends through Piedmont allowing for a fast, flowy and easy ride option in that notoriously rocky system. Even Chester Bowl got almost a mile’s worth!
Here are few write-ups on the DT:
