Skyline Trail Route Scouting

19 05 2008

View from the proposed Skyline TrailDuluth Area Trails Alliance members recently scouted and GPS’s the proposed Skyline Trail route above Duluth.  This segment of trail is a critical connection that will connect Enger Park to Chester Park, provide a ridgetop linkage for the Superior Hiking Trail, a shared use trail connection through a developed area of the city, easier access to trails for downtown and hillside residents and provide some spectacular views.  The GPS track confirmed that much of the route is on public land.  This is the first step in the process that will require confirming land ownership, contacting owners of land the trail will cross, laying out the route, getting approval, receiving public input and then eventually result in developing and maintaining a new trail.  It’s a lengthy process but one that will certainly be worth it to provide the public a beautiful new trail and easier access to trails in a heavily developed part of the city.  Anyone with interest in helping with the trail development process, please contact DATA.
