      The Mission Creek trail system is set of flowing machine built trails that meander the ridges and valleys in one of the most remote areas within the City of Duluth. This trail system opened in 2014, upon completion of build-phase 1, which consisted of the first 7 miles of singletrack on a high ridge above the St Louis River. Since then, 13 more miles of trail have been added, making for 20 miles in total, spanning the east and west sides of the Mission Creek valley.

      The trail system is the eastern most end of the Duluth Traverse project.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Chambers Grove Park - parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      The trail is best accessed from Chambers Grove Park in the Fond du Lac neighborhood of Duluth. Riders have the option of climbing the lower cathedral trail, or taking Highway 210 to access the rest of the trails.
