(We will update Experience Munger Trail 2020 info in Winter 2020)

Experience Munger Trail 2019 is a group trail skate and ride to highlight the beautiful Munger Trail sections here in Duluth, Minnesota. Let’s get outside, enjoy the spring weather, and get some exercise on this scenic and fun trail! Experience Munger Trail is a FREE event and everyone is encouraged to join us–skaters, cyclists, runners, and even baby strollers!

In the historic Duluth flood in 2012, portions of the Munger Trail were washed out and in rough shape for years. Sections were gravel, bad pavement, and really impassible for inline skates. In late 2017, crews finished repaving 5 miles from Grand Avenue to Beck’s Road. We are so thankful for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for completing this huge project.

Please pre-register online to be agree to our liability/safety waiver and to be eligible for gear and prize giveaways!

Sunday, May 12, 2019. Group skate starts at 10am.

The group skate starts at the Willard Munger State Trail Northern Trailhead in Duluth at Grand Ave. (Hwy 23) and 75th Ave. West, behind the Willard Munger Inn.

You can go as long or short as you want! Head out on the Munger Trail and turn around to head back whenever you want. Easy! We’ll start at 10am.
