Duluth begins to reopen natural surface trails
Some trails will be ready for use on Saturday.
DULUTH — The city will open several natural surface trails for use at noon Saturday, May 14. Trail users are asked to observe proper trail etiquette and stewardship by respecting individual trail closures and avoiding any wet, muddy stretches. If you notice that you are leaving a footprint or bicycle tire imprint on a trail, it is best to turn around to reduce the potential for additional trail damage.
If encountering a wet and/or muddy spot in an otherwise completely dry trail, it is best to travel forward, rather than veering around the wet spot to prevent widening of the path. Trails will close after a rainfall event and typically take 24 hours to dry and reopen afterward.
Trails slated to open Saturday include:
- Superior Hiking Trail — all except the Hartley Park, Kingsbury, and Mission Creek segments
- Morningside / Hawk Ridge Duluth Traverse
- Chester Park / West Chester DT
- Enger / Observation Hill / Antenna Farm DT
- Craft Connector Trail
- Lincoln Park
- Quarry Park / Bellevue Park
- Kissing Booth Trail
- Keene DT
The following trails remain closed due to wet conditions:
- Superior Hiking Trail — Hartley Park, Kingsbury, and Mission Creek segments
- Lester Park
- Hartley Park
- Piedmont Trails
- Brewer Park
- Kingsbury DT
- Mission Creek
