Gently undulating, consistently bermed, machine built singletrack. This section yields little elevation change overall, but rolls nicely all the way along. It has more of a 'deep woods' feeling to it (no panoramic viewpoints overlooking the city and lake). The track meanders through pine and maple forests on the east side, aspen and oak forests near the middle, and lower wetland shrubs on the west end where it skirts a beaver pond near Vermilion Rd.

There is a 900' section of road-riding on Amity St (gravel) just east of Jean Duluth Road.

This section is well-suited for families riding with little shredders who are still learning the ropes.

NOTE: the next Duluth Traverse section of the to the east ("Hawk Ridge Trail") is not well-suited for beginners, but the difficult part can be easily bypassed by riding east on Skyline Parkway (gravel road) until you come to the bridge over Amity Creek at Seven Bridges Rd (paved).
