Department of Parks and Recreation
Media Release

April 3, 2008

Contact: Kathleen Bergen, Director of Parks and Recreation at 730-4309; or Kelly Fleissner, City Forester at 730-4491; or Amy Norris, Public Information Coordinator at 730-4312.


City of Duluth trails closed to public use.


The City of Duluth's Parks and Recreation Department is asking the public to refrain from using city hiking trails, snowmobile trails and cross country ski trails. Due to the annual spring thaw these trails have become soft and are now vulnerable to being damaged with deep ruts and possible erosion.

The public can help prevent damage to these trails by staying off them until warmer temperatures and drier weather improve trail conditions. A notice regarding the reopening of trails will be provided as soon as conditions permit.

Trails that are open to the public at this time are the Lakewalk, the Munger Trail and the Western Waterfront Trail. In addition, the far eastern part of Skyline Parkway near Hawks Ridge is also a good place to walk as well as the far western end of Skyline Parkway, west of Spirit Mountain. These portions of Skyline are still closed to vehicular traffic.

The Keene Creek dog park also is closed until further notice.

The public should remain off of the trails until warmer and drying conditions improve the trails.

Trails that remain open to the public are: the Lakewalk, Munger Trail and the Western Waterfront Trail.

The far eastern part of Skyline Parkway, near Hawks Ridge, and the far western end of Skyline Parkway, west of Spirit Mountain, also are good for walking. Those areas of Skyline still are closed to vehicle traffic.
