Camping and Lodging
There are several camping options as well as many hotels and motels in the area. Spirit Mountain Campground is right on the bike park trails, and can be connected by double track with either Brewer or Mission Creek. Buffalo Valley is a two-mile ride on paved trail and double track to the Mission Creek trails. Fond du Lac campground is right next to Mission Creek trails.
Maps and Guidebooks
A note on directions in Duluth: The city is shaped like a "/" . When Duluthians talk about east they mean northeast, moving up to the top end of the "/". When they say west, they mean southwest, towards the lower end of the "/".
Food and Drink
For drinks after a ride, fly down the hill from Piedmont or Enger trails to Bent Paddle Brewing on Michigan Street. The taproom only serves beer, but you're welcome to bring in your own food, and Thursday nights sees the local food trucks parked out front.

Craving some great pizza and atmosphere? Head across the bridge to Thirsty Pagan in Superior, a brewpub and artisan pizzeria with a new outdoor beer garden and live music many nights.

Feeling like something stronger than beer? Check out Vikre distillery in Canal Park, or sip their spirits in some craft cocktails on the deck of the nearby Lake Ave Cafe before enjoying their locavore dinner menu.

Riding around the eastern end of town? Head on down to the Northern Waters restaurant on Woodland Avenue for house-cured meats and fish platters along with an eclectic dinner menu and a great drinks selection.

For an upscale meal that's fun not stuffy, drive or ride up the shore to the New Scenic Cafe in Knife River. Besides serving delicious, local food and drink, all these businesses help support trail building in town!
