Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A dedication for the 3.5 kilometer Eagle Ridge trail was held Saturday.

The new trail is an extension of the Biskey Ponds Ski Trail System near the Beaver and Cloquet Rivers.

Fans of the trail can thank a young Northland Eagle Scout, who thought it would be a great addition to the community. He and other eagle scout members, along with many volunteers, completed the trail in about a month.

"Everybody from the group that came out here and helped out was either from boy scout's, my troop or another troop, or community members," said Eagle Scout Jason Miller.

The Biskey Ponds Ski Trail is now about ten kilometers long.
