Have you done the official Duluth Traverse and you're looking for more of a challenge? This is an alternate variation on the official Duluth Traverse, using more difficult trails. This route doesn't hit the hardest trails in town, but when given the choice between green and blue, blue. Choose your own descent at Spirit Mtn. and feel free to add-on additional loops as you go, if you're really looking for punishment. This route is slightly longer and definitely more difficult than the actual Duluth Traverse.

Can be ridden either direction, but please note that if the lifts are running at Spirit Mtn, you can not ride up any of the downhill runs (they are one-way only). If the lifts are not running, you can climb Happy Camper.
