Duluth's natural surface trails will reopen Saturday

If you leave a footprint or bicycle tire imprint, stay off the trails, the city warned.

The city of Duluth's natural-surface trail will reopen Saturday thanks to falling temperatures.

In a news release Friday, the city's parks and recreation department said the public can again use the trails beginning Saturday.

The department urged caution, however, as conditions can change and using wet or thawed trails can cause severe damage. Rising temperatures may also temporarily close trails.

"If you are on a trail and leave a footprint or bicycle tire imprint, it is best to turn around to reduce the potential for additional trail damage," the city said. "If encountering a wet or muddy spot in an otherwise completely dry trail, users should go through the area rather than around to prevent further trail widening."
