Hartley Park, Duluth's 660-acre crown jewel, is a great place to spend any season — and spring is certainly no exception.
Though it's only been six months since we last took a look around Hartley, we thought it was high time to revisit our old friend.
It's easy to forget the late-season blizzard we just suffered through when you take a jaunt through the park's lush (read: sloppy and/or mud-slingin') walkways.
Kidding aside, it's actually a lovely time to get back into the swing of hiking at Hartley; just bring some boots and old clothes if you're at all concerned about going anywhere immediately afterward.
As always, stay up to date with goings-on at the park by calling the Hartley Nature Center at 724-6735 or visiting them online at www.hartleynature.org.
