Current Trail Conditions
City of Duluth Trail Conditions Policy:
Duluth has many miles of natural surface trails for hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing. During annual freeze/thaw cycles in the spring and fall, our trails are especially susceptible to damage due to wet conditions. Footprints and ruts on wet trails can cause significant damage, while increasing trail maintenance costs. Natural surface trails are closed each spring until they are dry enough for use without damage, however the paved and accessible trails listed above are a good option.
During the winter, if single track trail is freshly groomed after snowfall, the best practice is to wait until the surface has hardened or setup prior to usage. This prevents deep foot prints and rutting on the trail surface. Natural surface trails are susceptible to damage due to improper usage. In hard-packed snow conditions, the best practice is to only use the trail if you are not breaking through.
Trails should not be used during wet weather or when trails are soft or muddy. If you’re leaving footprints or ruts deeper than 0.5 inches, please turn around.
We appreciate your patience in allowing trails to dry before use. When trails are closed because of construction, maintenance, or events we ask that you obey any closure signs and detours. These closures are in place for your safety and for the protection of our trails.
Check our Trails and Bikeways page often for updates regarding natural surface trail conditions and closures, or call our trail comment line at 218-730-4323.
