In a Feb. 18 post the maps for the proposed Cross City Trail — which will connect the Munger Trail to the Lakewalk — were laid out. In the comments I included photos of the various route options for the westernmost section.
The middle section of the trail — from Ramsey Street to Clyde Park — has only one option, so there’s not a lot to seek feedback on, but I thought I’d shoot some photos anyway.
This bridge is actually NOT part of the proposed trail; I just like that a tree is growing through it.
Before beginning the photo tour, here are the links to the maps that are pertinent to this section:
So, crossing Mike Colalillo Drive at the bottom of Ramsey Street and heading under the freeway you’ll see a little bridge that looks like this:
Cross the bridge and you’re on your way. This next shot isn’t from the trail; it’s for perspective. The trail runs near the utility polls.
At 40th Avenue West, the trail goes along Oneota Street briefly. Below is the view from there, looking back.
When you get to 37-1/2 Ave. W., take the little bridge over I-35. Look! You have a lovely view of the Honking House!
Turn right on Michigan Street and the trail will climb a small hill to Wade Stadium — home of the Duluth Huskies.
Then you cross over Michigan Street on this snappy little bridge.
Follow the trail under the ore docks, and then under I-35. Maybe you’ll see a shiny red train.
This ain’t no nature trail, it’s about connecting to a nature trail through some heavy industry.
