We finally hit the mountain bike trails at Spirit Mountain and it was jaw dropping. First, the lift ride up was amazing. These photos don’t do it justice. I can’t even imagine how breath taking it will be when the leaves start turning.
It’s a little odd putting a bike up on the lift instead of skis…
These trails are brand new and really well made. Right now they have four downhill mountain bike trails (Candyland, Smorgasbord, Happy Camper, and Blaster). A couple are beginner/intermediate level, and one is definitely for the more experienced. For those seeking out a technical ride that’ll challenge you, try Smorgasbord and Blaster. For those who’ve never done anything like this, check out this jump!
We highly recommend visiting Spirit Mountain while you’re in Duluth, MN. Even if you don’t bike, they have all kinds of adventures. Take a look for yourself: http://www.spiritmt.com/
Finally, (don’t laugh) taking a video while riding is not recommended, nor is it easy… Watch at your own risk. Those susceptible to motion sickness look away!
