The Osaugie Trail features great views of the Twin Ports harbor, interesting museums and historic sites, and city services. There are many crossings at city streets, as well as two gravel crossings at active railroad tracks and one at an abandoned railroad grade. There are several steep sections. The bridge at Bluff Creek is surfaced with planks laid parallel to the trail. Narrow gaps between planks may cause problems for thin tires. The trail may be heavily used for many types of recreation on summer weekends. In winter you must have a Wisconsin snowmobile registration or nonresident trail use sticker. Superior’s new Osaugie Trail gives visitors a great view of the Twin Ports harbor, the busiest and biggest on the Great Lakes. Superior and its sister city, Duluth, Minnesota, are the gateway to the nation and the world for the bounty of the Midwest. Grain goes to countries all over the world. Iron ore is destined for America’s steel mills. All ships must pass over the treacherous waters of Lake Superior, the greatest of the Great Lakes. It is the world’s largest body of fresh water, the fabled Gitche Gumee of Ojibwe legend. Superior has lots to offer the visitor in the way of restaurants, shopping, and attractions.
