Another Section DONE – Wolf Creek to Hwy 169

One more section of trail is now open on the way to Ely – from Wolf Creek (just past Eagles Nest) to Hwy 169 (use caution, signage still to be installed). You can now ride continuous trail from Tower to Hwy 88, just short of Ely. They are working on the last section into Ely…but there are some delays due to weather & supply chain challenges. Some time this summer the trail between Tower & Soudan will be completely re-done…no dates yet. See a more detailed map at
