      Spirit Mountain will be closed for the 2020 summer season. Thank you for all of the support and love over the past years We look forward to riding again next year.

      The best lift-access mountain biking in all of Minnesota with views of Lake Superior and the St. Louis River basin! During the full summer schedule the lift operates Thursday-Sunday so get your gear together and RIDE ON!

      Our trails have received national accolades, the view of Lake Superior can't be beat, we offer cool locally brewed beers at the adjacent Riverside Bar & Grill, and when you're done biking for the day you can enjoy all of Duluth!

      Access Info:
      The Grand Avenue Chalet is the best location to park and access all of the mountain biking facilities. An alternate parking lot for mountain biking is located at the Adventure Park. Daily Tickets are available at either location. However, we strongly encourage folks to utilize the Grand Chalet location as it offers a better parking experience in addition to the amenities provided by the Riverside Bar & Grill.
