The public is welcome to comment on an environmental review for the Duluth Traverse Mountain Bike Trail, according to city officials. The comment period will be open from Wednesday through March 7.

As proposed, the Duluth Traverse would be a sustainable, multi-use, single-track trail on natural surfaces for human-powered recreational use. It will stretch across the city’s ridgeline, city officials said.
