Walking and biking trail

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

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.

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.

We didn't have any bikes but I do know you can rent them in Duluth. So we just took a nice walk. The trail goes for miles and is completely paved. easy going to Duluth harder on the return more up hill.

Willard Munger trail is a great ride through some beautiful northern Minnesota scenery. There has been some construction the last few years due to some big storms in Duluth. But these improvements will make the trail more enjoyable in the future.

This was our first ride on the Willard Munger State Trail. On this first of what will be several trips to this trail, we rode to the trail from the main lot at Jay Cook State Park up to the trail; which was a steady climb. We then rode south / west on the trail through Carlton for a ways.... More
