The City of Duluth Parks and Rec is preparing a Mini-Master Plan for the Cross City Trail, a continuous multi-use trail that will extend from the western end of the Lakewalk to Becks Road.


The Mini-Master plan will guide trail development over the next 25 years and will allow the City to seek Regional Trail Designation from the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission, in order to apply for Legacy Grant funding.

If you would like to attend, the meeting will take place on December 10th at Denfeld High School (401 N. 44th Ave West) in the Commons area from 5-7 PM. The Mini-master plan is expected to be completed by the summer of 2016. There will also be opportunities for public input at the meeting.

The final Mini-Master Plan will be presented to the Parks Commission for approval and will need City Council approval before implementation. Cross City Trail project goals include identification of an alignment to connect the Lakewalk to the Munger Trail with a paved, nonmotorized trail for walking, general biking and connecting Spirit Mountain to Becks Road along the former Duluth Winnipeg Pacific (DWP) rail corridor.

If you cannot make the meeting, you can also find more information here. Let me know in the comments below what you think of the Cross City Trail.
