Winter Trail Season Kickoff Celebration

December 2, 2023 Category:

Join HNC and our friends in celebrating the start of the winter hiking & biking season at Hartley Park on December 2nd and help raise some money for winter trail grooming. Rocky Mountain Bikes will be here providing free fat tire bike demos, Continental Ski & Bike will be leading group rides with our pals at COGGS. COGGS will also be doing grooming demonstrations with the snow dog (weather dependent) and a prize drawing that could send you home with a new bike from Rocky Mountain, or a new vest from Empire Wool and Canvas. The Duluth Area Outdoor Alliance will be here to provide trail information and talk more about winter recreational opportunities in Hartley and beyond, while the Duluth Foot Trail Alliance will be here to talk about hiking and running on winter trails. North Shore Sauna will be firing up their mobile tent saunas, and embark Maple syrup will be keeping us warm with hot maple syrup steamers! Check out cool gear from ROMP Bags, and Empire Wool and Canvas, and enjoy some hydration samples from Scratch Labs. Johnny B’s Food truck will be here selling delicious and warm meals to fill you up when you get hungry.

Rides will be happening at 10:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, and 2:30pm. A portion of the proceeds from the event will help COGGS with winter trail grooming efforts in Hartley Park. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.
