I've biked the entire trail and it's a must try trail for the casual or serious biker. Even better is to camp at one of the three state parks located near the trail.

We enjoyed biking this trail. It was well maintained, safe, and easy to ride. We rode to Spirit Mountain via the trail from Indian Point RV Park. There is some construction going on at this time in West Duluth area.

Loved riding the Munger Trail. Mostly paved, some gravel spots waiting for repairs from storm damage. Wooded, rock cliffs, wildlife. Some long easy climbing hills (but what goes up must come down). Also using the trail were hikers, runners, and birders, Great for the family.

We stayed at the Munger Inn at the trail,head. Long gradual climb, some nice old railway cuts and views of the river valley. Lots of gravel sections which would be hell on skinny tired bikes. Could use better signage. We had no idea how far...More

Biking this trail is a blast. People also walk, run or roller-blade. All sorts of activity on the trail! Many people using it, so I never felt too isolated. The trail is nice, but going to the upper ridge by the Buffalo house is not...More
