Description from City of Duluth 2011 Bike Report:

The city-owned, abandoned, Duluth Winnipeg and Pacific(DWP) railroad corridor is currently used as an informal trail. The 100-ft wide corridor (wider in some locations)runs continuously for approximately 10 miles from 63rd Street West to Becks Road. Sections of the DWP also extends east from 63rd Street, but they are not all contiguous.The DWP is a very scenic route with several stone, iron and wooden trestles and a tunnel under the rock of Ely’s Peak. (This is also a popular rock climbing site and UMD has put in a trail and trail head on Becks Road.) The corridor provides an excellent unpaved multi-use regional trail system. Significant restoration and repair is needed on the trestles, rail bed and tunnel.
