Minnesota Power employees left their desks Tuesday to hit the trails at Hartley Nature Park.

They spent the day rebuilding sections of boardwalk, digging post holes, putting in signage, and opening new sections of the trail.

Back in the spring, Minnesota Power granted $35,000 to COGGS – Cyclists of the Gitchee Gumee Shores – and Tuesday, workers were excited to put some sweat behind the investment.

“We’re just so excited to be a part of something so grand that’s going on in the community, and with such a great environmental stewardship group like the COGGS organization,” said Tonya Loken, Community Relations with Minnesota Power.

“We all live and work here, so we appreciate the trails too, and we just love being out here on such a beautiful day,” Loken added.

Right now, the Duluth Traverse is 60 miles of multi–use trail.

Upon completion in 2017, more than 100 miles will span the city.
