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

Local Government continues to upgrade and provide wonderful upkeep to this trail system, it is just awesome! A wonderful place to jog or walk with the dogs or bike or hike! This is definitely a great place for the whole family.

Very scenic, some nice variation in gravel and pavement. Enjoyed the nature and amazing sunny day we got to have for our hike!

I enjoy it even though it's a little older. It has a lot of beauty and it's a great place to walk or bike.

I ride up from the Twin Cities to Duluth at least once each summer and plan the same in a few weeks. The trail is the quickest and easiest way up there as there is really no terrain to overcome except the fun little loop north of Finlayson. The trail has its beauty and also some uninteresting sections. The last... More

The paved trail goes on for miles and connects with other trails too. There are some gravel areas due to the 500 year flood of June, 2012, that haven't been paved yet, but the scenic beauty is breathtaking!

This use to be the old railroad bed. I grew up walking the tracks to get around town but now I can walk in comfort. Great for walking, biking or rollar blading (except a few spots where the flood washed things out) Don't be surprised to see deer, bear, turkey vultures & maybe even a cougar! Lots of wild flowers...

My husband has just gotten back into biking following some major health problems, and this was the perfect trail for him. It is flat, paved and scenic in the area we rode from Carlton to Duluth and back. The gorge just east of Carlton has a beautiful bridge from which to appreciate the scene, and bike racks you can lock... More

Really beautiful trail that runs for 63 miles from Hinkley to Duluth. The entire thing is paved, although there are a few spots where the pavement got washed out by the floods of 2012. There was dirt/ gravel in those sections, which were no more than 200 feet in any one spot. Easily rideable with a road bike, as long... More

We biked from Hinkley to Carlton on the first day. Very flat, mainly open with views of farm fields. Second day biked from Carlton to Duluth and back, very scenic, more rolling hills, much more beautiful than the first day. No places right off the trail to stop for refreshments unlike the Hinckley to Carlton stretch. Recommend stopping at The... More
