The Cloquet Area Trails Committee has been diligently working to create a comprehensive trail plan that provides connectivity within Cloquet. The committee has 14 active members dedicated to enhancing the communities walk and bike trails. This includes partnering with local, regional and state organizations to complete the proposed plan.
In 2009, the committee saw the completion of the now highly utilized connection from the City of Carlton to the City of Scanlon (near the park and ride) called the St. Louis River trail. Although lack of funding suspended the second phase of this plan, a route from Scanlon to Cloquet, the plan has been updated and reactiviated. The Northeast Carlton County Bickcle Route Plan has been fornulated and the committee is dedicated to enhancing the community through trail connectivity and expansion.
