Our climbing group left a rope at mystic mountain 8/10/2013. It was not there 8/17/2013. If anyone found we would love to get it back.

This past September the Duluth Conservation Corps MN crew constructed a series of stone stairways on the approach to Mystical. This was one of the first improvements ever to be done on this trail. Before hand it was a steep boulder strewn gully. Please be respectful and good stewards of this area, stay on the trail and respect Wolf Ridge's rules. Climbing in this area is a privilege. Thank you.
