City of Duluth temporarily closes all natural surface trails 

[Duluth, MN] The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation division has temporarily closed all-natural surface trails due to the annual spring thaw until further notice. If used on foot or by bike, the wet soil conditions will significantly damage these critical assets. The City anticipates reopening the trails once surface conditions improve.

All City of Duluth cross-country ski trails remains open for skiing as long as snow covers the trails. Hiking on ski trails is not permitted while snow is on the ground.

Paved and gravel surface trail opportunities for walking or cycling include:

  • A one-mile section of the Munger State Recreation Trail from Pulaski Street to Beaudry Street
  • The Campus Connector Trail between the College of St. Scholastica and UMD and along Tischer Creek
  • The Cross-City Trail from Bayfront Park through Lincoln Park
  • Duluth Lakewalk
  • Beaches along Minnesota Point
  • Old Hartley Road
  • Amity Creek Equestrian Trail
  • Duluth Winnipeg and Pacific Railway (DWP) Trail
  • Waabizheshikana (formerly known as the Western Waterfront Trail)
