We loved the fall colours here on our wedding anniversary - just wished we had brought our bikes along although walking was good also. Since we are geocachers, we loved finding the caches along here. Would love to come back to Duluth area again!

We've gone on this trail many times, and it's a great way to go south out of Duluth. The first 15 miles from Duluth to Carlton are the most scenic, but it's pleasant after that as well. There was some extensive damage to the trail between Duluth and Carlton due to the June 2012 flood, but it's largely repaired (there... More

We brought everyone's bikes up for a long weekend and had a blast seeing the fall colors along the State Trail. It is nice and flat, even the 5 year old kept up for miles and miles. It is well maintained and very scenic. Loved it!

This is my favorite bike ride to take with a spouse or a couple friends. It is so beautiful. It's still a little broken up from the flood a couple years ago but if you are on a bike it doesn't matter. For inline skaters - it would be difficult. I love how you can go as far as you... More

Wonderful trail - you don't notice how you're going up the side of the bluff until you're at the top and looking out over the town. You can make the trip as long as you want, as it goes for miles. There are even a few campsites along the way for the more adventurous traveler.

Biked portion from Barnum to trail end/beginning at West Duluth. Trail was in excellent condition in most places except a number of very short gravel areas from the washout a couple years ago. Nearly all the trail is wooded with one great view of running river below. Only disappointment was you don't get any nice views into Duluth as you... More
