Piedmont Trail

The Piedmont trail system has 5.5 km of classical-style double-tracked trail for beginning, intermediate and advanced skiers. Aspen and birch dominate the rolling landscape, and several breathtaking views of the St. Louis River and City of Duluth are found atop rocky overlooks.

The Superior Hiking Trail runs through the ski trail system. This foot-travel only hiking trail is a section of the national long distance trail, the North Country Trail, stretching from New York to North Dakota. In Duluth, this section of trail, from Jay Cooke State Park in the south to Hawk Ridge in the north, is maintained by the Superior Hiking Trail Association.

A local chapter of the International Mountain Bike Association, the Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS), maintain about 12 kilometers of intermediate and advanced level singletrack trail. This system will eventually connect to their cross-city, beginner level single track trail call the Duluth Traverse.

Also located within this trail system is a snowmobile trail maintained by the Ridge Runners of Hermantown and Proctor. Other than snowmobiles, motorized use on any trail in the City of Duluth is not allowed. If you observe such activity, please call 911 and report what you observe.
