Britton Peak Mountain Bike Trail System | Tofte MN
The Superior Cycling Association is hosting a long-awaited Grand Opening of the Jackpot/High Climber mountain bike trails connecting the Britton Peak trails to Lutsen Mountains. This 16-mile wilderness trail through the Sawtooth Mountains of Cook County, which has been referred to by others as “one of the best trails in the state”, offers big climbs with rewarding fast and flowy descents, jumps, rollers, massive berms, incredible rock features, and scenic vistas all located in the maple forest of the North Shore.
Work on the trail began in the Fall of 2018 and the last portions of the trail were completed in 2020. But due to COVID, plans for a Grand Opening were delayed. It is time to celebrate this great trail and all the partners that contributed to make it a reality.
