Duluth Mayor Don Ness led a group of adventurers on a short but sweet trek on Thursday.

The hike went from Chester Bowl to Burrito Union, a total distance of about 0.9 miles. The hike was part of the Minnesota Hiking Celebration, which goes from Thursday to Saturday.

The celebration is put on by the North Country Trail Association. They are a nonprofit responsible for building, maintaining and promoting the North Country National Scenic Trail, of which they say the Superior Hiking Trail is unofficially a part.

"We're hikers," said Florence Hedeen, Chairwoman of the Hiking Celebration planning committee. "We want everyone to be introduced to the quiet sport of hiking and what better place than Duluth? The city hosts 40 miles of the Superior Hiking Trail."

The celebration runs through Saturday. A full schedule of events is available on the North Country Trail Association's website.
