Come support your local Outdoor Recreation hub to raise money for the All-Weather Mountain Biking Trail at Spirit Mountain.
What is the All-Weather Trail?
An All-Weather Trail, AWT, is a biking trail that can be used in a variety of weather conditions. Rather it is rain, snow, sun or sleet. If you want to bike, this trail is your source. The trail is designed to be 4.6 miles in length, user-friendly for all ability levels and is considered "capped" or meaning the trail will be constructed to shed water quickly.
Why an AWT?
With a vision laid out in 2013 to incite the development of a focal point for all outdoor recreation enthusiasts living and traveling to Duluth; this vision generated a series of master plans to develop the Western Corridor of Duluth. Creating greater recreation opportunities, green and wild spaces and a renewal of the trail system. Voted Best Outdoor City by Outdoor Magazine in 2014, annual visits of 3.1 million and a thriving demographic of recreation users and a designated IMBA Gold Level Ride Center; Duluth is quickly developing into a Recreation Mecca for the entire Midwest.
Spirit Mountain is at a significant crossroad with an opportunity like no other. With a commitment from The City of Duluth and COGGS (non-profit) we are in the position to be the first area east of the Mississippi to construct and maintain an All-Weather Trail.
