Description

This is a continuation of the Duluth Traverse, connecting Observation Road (paved road) with Twin Ponds (city park). The nearest parking is at the Twin Ponds parking lot.

From the parking lot climb the bermed switchback to a great overlook at the top. The high point on this trail offers some of the biggest views in town, it's not called Observation Hill for nothing!
The last 1,000' of trail is a slalom through the woods down to the road.
Between the view and the fun features on the trail, this section should not not be skipped when running the Enger Trail - Duluth Traverse .

The Enger Trail - Duluth Traverse connects to this parking lot. It's located on the other side of the lower pond (next to the pedestrian crossing dam).
