We stayed at the Munger Inn at the trail,head. Long gradual climb, some nice old railway cuts and views of the river valley. Lots of gravel sections which would be hell on skinny tired bikes.

The trail is mostly paved with some gravel patches but not bad. We took it from the Williard Mungar Inn and it is an incline all the way- we went about 8 miles and had a very nice lunch at the Buffalo Creek Inn. Going back was easy just wish we had more views of the water.

We enjoyed cycling the trail and roller blading. Easy to access and miles of paved trails, interesting rock cuts along an old railway line.

Went on a hike for a few miles in January 2016. It is a beautiful and well maintained trail. It was snow covered during the time I was there. The views were amazing. I am excited to try biking on the trail this spring. A nice hidden treasure for the area.

Well, this trail is good for whatever activities you're into. We enjoy using it for snowmobiling and four wheeling.

Spent a couple hours on an October afternoon at Mungwr Trail at Ely'S Peak. It is a high spot to biew the St Louis river and Lake Superior with beautiful fall colors. Climbed around on the rocks and up to the peak. Also an old railroad tunnel you can walk through the mountain.

I can't wait for the repairs to be complete on the trail between Carlton and Duluth, as it is one of the most beautiful bike trails in Minnesota. An easy 14 miles downhill, with lots of woods, birds, and other wildlife to sight along the way.
