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

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!)
