Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --The Duluth City council is expected to discuss millions in grants that would help boost the city's recreational trails.

One is a legacy grant for $1 million that would be used for improvements to Chamber Grove Park following the June 2012 flood.

The second calls for $2.2 million for the completion of the Duluth Traverse Trail which will connect with the Munger trail.

The grant announcements come on the heels of Running Magazine ranking Duluth as the third best place to run in the nation.

"People are coming to Duluth to make Duluth their life, a place where they want to live because of all the different amenities we offer and that trail system is really, really, important," said Linda Krug, councilor at large.

Popular trails listed in the article include the seven mile paved Lakewalk, and the Superior Hiking Trail.
