Ely’s Peak Loop Celebration with Mayor Larson (rescheduled)
October 22, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The Superior Hiking Trail Association, in partnership with the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department, recently completed work on a new section of the SHT to complete a loop at Ely’s Peak in West Duluth. We are pleased to host a celebration on October 22nd at 3:30pm with Duluth Mayor Emily Larson, who will install a “You Are Here” map to guide trail users as they explore the new loop. The public is invited to join us at the Beck’s Road trail head (123rd Ave W) for a short walk up to the new loop for the map installation ceremony.
The new Ely’s Peak Loop is the third of the “Triple Crown of Duluth SHT Loops,” which includes the Brewer Park and Spirit Mountain SHT Loops. With panoramic vistas and exposed rock faces, the Ely’s Peak Loop provides an outstanding opportunity for residents and visitors to connect with nature within Duluth city limits.
The project was led by SHTA Trail Renewal Consultant Larry Sampson with the support of dozens of SHTA volunteers who contributed nearly 420 hours of field work on the project. Students from the Harbor City International School also contributed nearly 100 hours of volunteer work.
The project was funded through the City of Duluth’s St. Louis River Corridor Initiative and matching funds from SHTA.
