New for 2014, the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series' second stop in Duluth will head to the newly constructed Mission Creek trail system. After seeing the successes of the Great Hawk Chase on Duluth's eastern end, it's time to showcase the amazing trails found elsewhere in the city. The Mission Creek Trail system marks the western terminus of the Duluth Traverse System, and is being constructed by Progressive Trail Design of Fayetteville, AR and Rock Solid Trails of Copper Harbor, MI.
Racers can expect fast and flowing singletrack with many bridges, berms, and rollers. This trail traverses through a dramatic, heavily forested, landscape with spectacular views of the St. Louis River Valley and Jay Cooke State Park.
The Voyageur's Revenge is part of the weekend long Kraus Anderson Bike Duluth Festival, which will showcase the expansive trail system that Duluth has to offer. Come one, come all for a great weekend on the trails. See you in Duluth!
