The first public meeting for the Duluth Traverse Trail Management and Master Plan is this Thursday, February 9 and the public is invited. This meeting is designed to determine best practices for future management, to guide final segment development and construction, and gather input on improvements to the trail system.
This weekend, all biking enthusiasts should plan to be at Spirit Mountain for the third annual Bike Duluth Festival, presented by the Kraus-Anderson Community Foundation and Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores.

When we moved to Superior years ago, neither of us knew much about the town. Everyone in the Twin Ports talks about the great biking trails and paths around Duluth, but Superior rarely gets mentioned. That's why I was a bit surprised a few years ago to find out that the city actually has it's own forest in the city limits.
The Twin Ports is home to miles and miles of biking trails. There's mountain bike trials, paved trails, and beautiful scenery all around. Here's 4 of the best paved trails in the Northland to go biking on with the family.
Spirit Mountain has teamed up with COGGS, a biking advocy group, to win a contest that would fund a new bike park at Spirit Mountain. The grant would come from Bell Bike Helmets, and Spirit Mountain has advanced all the way to the final voting, but is currently in second place.
Bell Helmets will be awarding $100,000 to a city to fund a trail building project. Duluth needs your vote! The project would be for a bike park at Spirit Mountain. Duluth is faced against Red Rock Park in New Mexico and Cedar Creek Trail in New Mexico. At the time of this article, Duluth has a narrow lead.
I am Cathy Kates and I am addicted to cake. I L O V E cake!!! While on vacation recently we drove past this store while in the truck traveling to a friend's house. I told my husband Homie, "we're definitely going there!!!" But, when we came back through, it was closed. I made sure to put it on the agenda for the next day, but what we encountered, I was NOT expecting!
