Support the Duluth Area Horse Trail Alliance

Horse riders! Come together for local horse trails!

Duluth is a premiere trail city for many users. Our goal is to make sure horse trails are in the plans for a destination experience.

We are currently setting our next trail development goals for expanded riding opportunities. DAHTA is a 100% volunteer organization. We need YOU to help us make this happen. Join or donate and then come ride with us!

About the new horse trail in the Magney-Snively Natural Area: 

NOTE 6-4-21: This trail is dried and ready to ride. Please be sure to clean any manure out of the parking lot. Haul it back out with you.

The City of Duluth officially opened the Ely Peak Loop to horses on October 12, 2018, but there are a few things to know. 1) The City of Duluth installed etiquette, designation and directional signage. Eleven more signs are being ordered to complete the job. 2) The repaired loop is 3.7 miles. Horses can also ride on W. Skyline Pkwy., including in the winter when the road is closed. 3) Parking is at the trailhead parking lot at 10005 W. Skyline Parkway. 4) There are horse only reroute trails off the main trail to avoid steep inclines. Please use the reroutes. 5) The trail is dry enough for summer/fall riding. Check this site before you go in the spring. 6) Remove all manure from parking lot (haul it out with you).

Let’s ride! (P.S. This is going to be a lot of fun!)
