Birkie Start Area Roller Ski Trail5K Paved Roller Ski, Walking & Hiking Trail at Mt Telemark

Named after a Birkie Warrior, ski trail developer, and an Olympic skier from Duluth, Minnesota, the George Hovland Trail is a 5-kilometer paved trail that ties the whole project together. Roller ski, walk, bike, or hike around the beautiful trail. Note that the most advanced trails are optional – meaning there is something for everyone.
