Snowmobile Trail Restoration

Project Status: Implementation Phase

Project Update (10/12/15): Work is underway with A+ Landscaping to repair portions of the old Duluth Winnipeg Pacific (DWP) Rail Grade, the old Thompson Hill Trail and western snowmobile trails that were damaged in the 2012 flood. Weather dependent, the projects will be completed this Fall. This lays the groundwork for our partner, the Over the Hill Night Riders (http://www.overthehillnightriders.com/) to work on ailing bridges and other trails that have had few resources dedicated to maintenance. The Club has 56 miles of trail that connects to the Munger, CJ Ramstad and North Shore State Trails with about 16 of those miles within the Duluth City limits (seven more with the Munger.) The Club plans to restore several more miles of old trail that have been closed due to erosion issues.

Project Overview: The Fairmont/Norton Park Snowmobile Trail project will restore and realign 4.5 miles of flood-damaged snowmobile trails and bridges above the Fairmount and Norton Park neighborhoods on the slopes of Thompson Hill.
