Duluth Area Horse Trail Alliance Looks to Reopen Spirit Mountain Trails

A Fundraiser is Happening Sunday, December 11 to Hopefully Raise $30,000

The Duluth Area Horse Trail Alliance is hosting a beer/wine tasting event Sunday, December 11, from 3:00-6:00p.m. at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth.

It’s going to take numerous truckloads of fill and a large volunteer effort, but local horse riders are determined to reopen the Magney-Snively trails on Spirit Mountain to horse riding once again.

The fundraiser will include raffle ticket drawings for six major prizes, including packages for Spirit Mountain fun, garden lovers, and Northland dining.

The raffle prizes range from a value of $400 to $1,000, and raffle tickets can be purchased at the door for ten dollars.

DAHTA’s first fundraising goal is $30,000 to harden the 3.7 mile Ely Peak Loop on the Magney-Snively cross country ski trails, which will be shared with horse riders in the off seasons.

The trail needs extensive culvert replacement and other repair work to make it sustainable for hooved traffic.

DAHTA’s mission is to develop and maintain, preserve and protect, public lands and parks for equestrian use in and around the Greater Duluth area, as well as educate the general public about equestrian activities.
