XC Trail in the Winter

Cross Country Skiing at Mountain Villas

Adjacent to the Mountain Villas resort, Spirit Mountain Nordic Trails are 22 kilometers of beautifully wooded cross-country ski trails, double tracked with skating lanes. This trail system connects to the Magney-Snively ski trail system and also to the Superior Hiking Trail, and is a joint endeavor of the city of Duluth, the Duluth Cross-Country Ski Club, and Spirit Mountain Recreation Area.

The trails are easy to access from parking lots at the nearby Nordic Trail Head and from the Mountain Villas office area. Please ask at the office if you want to stay in a villa located about 100 feet from the Nordic trail.

On this trail map, the Mountain Villa office is in the northernmost Black trail area.

Further information is on the Spirit Mountain Nordic Skiing webpage.

Mountain Villas are the perfect place to stay if you are a cross country skier!
