Park Description

Once six separate parks, Magney-Snively Park consists of 728 undeveloped acres that stand above several neighborhoods in western Duluth. It is named for former Duluth mayors—and park supporters—Clarence Magney and Samuel F. Snively. The park is home to hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails and the Snively Monument.

The Magney-Snively Natural Area is comprised of almost 1,800 acres in west Duluth. The natural area is a highly functional, viable ecosystem consisting of a diverse mosaic of wetlands, uplands, and rock outcrop communities. These characteristics, as well as its large size, make Magney-Snively of the highest ecological significance and quality to be found within an urban area.
