Featured Ride: Everything But Ninja Beaver, Minnesota

Ninja Beaver 1

“Everything But Ninja Beaver” is a ride linking several trails in the Mission Creek area near Superior, Wisconsin, and Duluth, Minnesota. This 12.6-mile ride is 85 percent flowing, rolling singletrack with about 1,000 feet each of climbing and descending. It’s a great one for newer riders and kids to get out and enjoy mountain biking in a remote, beautiful and wooded setting.

If you need to make this ride shorter, or want to add an extra couple of miles to your ride, you can certainly tack on the “Ninja Beaver” trail, which is similar to the rest of the system. It skirts a beaver pond and offers a sustained climb/descent depending on which way you ride it.
