      Duluth is designated by IMBA as a "Gold Level Ride Center", sharing this honor with only five other places in the world, including Park City, Utah; Boise-Eagle, Idaho; Oak Ridge, Oregon; and two locations in New Zealand

      From IMBA:
      "From the buffed-out, flowing trails at Lester to the freerider playgrounds of Piedmont and Brewer to the lift-accessed trails of Spirit Mountain, the riding in Duluth is both high-quality and highly varied. The entire community has embraced trail-based recreation, including a major initiative to create the Duluth Traverse. This in-progress effort—led in part by the Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS)—will result in a 100-mile singletrack network within city limits. Currently, Duluth offers more than 60 miles of trails on or near the glistening shores of Lake Superior.

      In 2011, IMBA helped design the first 40 miles of the Duluth Traverse. Based on that trails plan and the superior efforts of COGGS, the city was then awarded a $250,000 Parks and Trails Legacy grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to be used for the traverse project. COGGS will also receive $100,000 annually from the city of Duluth's Park Fund until the Duluth Traverse project is completed.

      Due, in part, to the Duluth Traverse, that city was named one of Outside Magazine’s “Best Towns of 2014."
