When the trail opened Wednesday, July 18, a storm of bicycle traffic rolled into Pine Valley to ride the new track. The trail is purpose-built and optimized for mountain biking, but it is also open to hikers and runners, plus snowshoes and fat bikes in the winter. "I expected some shotty trails, because I hadn't heard much about it," Spencer Mayasich, an avid mountain biker from Cloquet, explained. "My expectations were soon blown out of the water."
After the two years it took to start up the organization, teams were developed— boys and girls teams from U8 to U14 age groups. Hall explained there were 125 kids the first year, 220 the second year and around 250 the third year. He believes the organization is going to continue to increase in enrollment. As a result, Arrowhead Titans is looking for its South teams to form their own organization, one of which Sean is a coach for, made up of Cloquet, Esko, Carlton and Proctor kids.
