The extension that is proposed to run through the Morgan Park community beginning in Riverside shows a great amount of economic, business, and recreational development potential. With a grassroots approach led by community involvement the Morgan Park community can develop this project by means of a low cost budget due to volunteer commitment. Environmentally this project can be low impact taking into consideration the immense amount of natural habitat that exists in the lower St. Louis River estuary. This compiled report outlines the history and development of the St. Louis River estuary, the recreational opportunities it holds, economic and property issues that may arise, and the volunteer, construction, and maintenance component of this project. Additionally, the University of Minnesota Duluth’s spring semester Geographic Information Sciences (G.I.S) Urban Analysis course created a compilation of map based scenarios relating to the proposed extension area. These maps range from neighborhood access points to various plant communities surrounding the trail area. The final map for the proposed trail was also completed through the University of Minnesota Duluth’s G.I.S program.
