Green level Duluth traverse section from the zoo to Spirit Mtn, although here on Trailforks it is split into two sections.
Rolling traverse of the hillside, no significant climbs or descents. Like most other Duluth Traverse sections, this is wide, machine built trail, with no drop offs or narrow bridges. It does have a few sections of rock, both natural slab and man made armoring, that novice riders, especially smaller kids, might find a bit more challenging.
