This rocky trail traverses high along the ridge overlooking the harbor.

Description

From the southeast side of Duluth's Twin Ponds (small city park) the start of this section intersects Skyline Pkwy (paved road) and descends into the singletrack.

The first (eastern) half of this segment is downhill westbound from Twin Ponds. In general, you'll be making your way down around the knob of rock with the harbor on your left and Enger Tower on your right (way up there). This section has some steep sections. The trail surface is a mix of hardpack, gravel and bedrock here.

After the halfway point, the trail climbs in camel-back fashion up to Skyline Pkwy. The initial portion of the climb has a number of switchbacks then straightens out as you skirt the southern edge of a golf course driving range. After passing the driving range, there is a bit of a descent before the climbing switchbacks resume.

At the far west end, the trail comes out onto Skyline Pkwy (paved road). To continue the Duluth Traverse westbound, stay on the left side sidewalk of Skyline Pkwy across the bridge over US Hwy 53. Go straight across N24th Ave, and turn left, dropping off the sidewalk onto the Miller Creek - Duluth Traverse singletrack along the creek.
