Duluth Celebrates Trail Recognition

City Named IMBA Gold Level Center

The city of Duluth is known for its elite trails and now its celebrating a new honor.

Duluth is now recognized as an IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center.
The center in Duluth will encompass a 100-mile singletrack network within the city limits.

This is one of six IMBA Gold-Level Ride Centers in the world.

“We can connect 16 of Duluth’s neighborhoods with this trail. We can go through six different trail centers,” explained COGGS Chairperson Waylon Munch.

For Visit Duluth, this recognition means the city can offer tourists even more when they come here.

“For those who do come here, this provides an ultimate experience they’re not going to get anywhere else in the world,” explained Visit Duluth President and CEO Anna Tanski.

Duluth Mayor Emily Larson says not only will this help with tourism, but it will also benefit residents, “this is what we can offer our residents. This is not just a weekend destination. These opportunities are available for every single resident in Duluth.”

As of today, the trail stands at 75 miles and will be 85 miles by the end of the year.
