COGGS is extremely proud to announce the
8th Annual Duluth Traverse Gala
on Saturday, March 16, 2019!

This event has raised well over $500,000 dollars in the past seven years for trail building and maintenance in the Twin Ports. These trails improve the lives of EVERYONE in our area. The Duluth Traverse (DT) provides access to all trail users in the Twin Ports, from mountain bikers to dog walkers, to elementary school ornithologists. Trails improve our well being, create a vital resource for our community, and help establish the Twin Ports as a world-class tourist destination. 

As we enter the final push to complete the remaining 10% of the Duluth Traverse Trail, we invite you to celebrate our progress and support another wonderful year ahead. Your continued support will help to complete and maintain the DT, our Gold Level Ride Center status, and firmly establish Duluth's reputation as a premier outdoor recreation destination with the largest urban, multi-use, trail system in the nation!

Our goal is to build sustainable trails
for future generations.
Join us.
