This section can be ridden in either direction and can be used in conjunction with the Amity West Trail or the Lester River Trail to create a complete loop.

Riding uphill (from south to north):

Starting out at Lester Park, look for this trail heading uphill and into the woods from the park pavilion/shelter.

Cross a couple of XC ski trails before you've made it far enough west to catch your first few glimpses of Amity Creek through the woods. Once the trail reaches the Amity Creek ravine, it follows this ravine (on the east side) up-stream, rolling along all the way. This is a good place to become proficient at 'pumping' off of the small hills as you make your way up.

After loosing sight of the creek, you will eventually come out of the woods and into an open a section of singletrack that parallels Seven Bridges Road (paved) for a short time.

The next trail intersection is with Amity West. Leave this intersection riding north (i.e. bearing slightly to the right). Overall, you'll be mostly climbing, but there are plenty of short descents scattered along this segment as it rolls up the hill.

This section gets relatively rocky/rooty, especially nearest the northern end. There aren't however, any prolonged technical sections. Just one or two rocky spots that beginner riders can easily step through in a couple of strides.

When you get the chance to safely do so, don't forget to look up and take in the views of the Amity Creek ravine as you go.

Near the northern end, you'll encounter an intersection with the Lester River Trail - Duluth Traverse.

Beautiful fall weather. A few muddy spots (mostly near the top) that should be given TLC but mostly dry.
