This is from the DNR HSOforum.

The 63 mile Hinckley - Duluth segment of the Willard Munger State Trail is now completely paved, making this the longest paved trail in the world. The trail extends between Hinckley, Willow River, Moose Lake, Barnum, Carlton, and Duluth. The trail passes near Banning State Park, through Finlayson, Willow River and General C.C. Andrews State Forest, and through the spectacular scenery of Jay Cooke State Park. The northeast portion of the trail provides scenic views of the St. Louis River and the twin ports of Duluth and Superior.

I live in Carlton and I like the portion from Carlton to Duluth the best because there is shade and some great scenery and if it is windy you are protected a little more. There are some spots with hills so a 7 year old might get a little tired but if you start in Carlton you can just stop at the start of the hills and come back. There is a parking lot and a picnic area along with satellites.

We rode the Munger trail from the trailhead in Duluth to Jay Cooke, then in to Carlton.About 30 miles round trip. A very nice trail most of the way. some spots are rough due to tree roots growing up through the blacktop. Mostly wooded, really not any views of the lake. The trail has a slight incline going towards Jay Cooke. My wife and I, I had my 7 year old on a tag a long, and my 10 year old daughter. averaged about 10 mph on the way up, and 15 mph going back to duluth.

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
