Cross City Trail


Project Status: 2022- Design underway for Segment 3, and Segment 6

Project Overview:

The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a 10.3-mile multi-purpose, non-motorized, wheelchair accessible, paved trail system that connects the Lakewalk in downtown Duluth to the Munger Trail, as well as Waabizheshikana: The Marten Trail, in western Duluth.

The Duluth Cross City Trail will be a one-of-a-kind, off-road trail for non-motorized trail users of all ages and abilities. The trail will provide a connection from the Willard Munger State Trail to the Duluth Lakewalk, offer safe access to distinctive natural areas in western Duluth, present exceptional views of the St. Louis River Corridor and estuary, and fill a gap in a significant state trail route from central Minnesota to the North Shore of Lake Superior.
