Some Area Trails Slowly Opening

Trail users urged to be careful and avoid damaging wet trails.
Natural Surface Trails To Be Closed Temporarily

[Duluth MN] The Duluth Parks and Recreation Department said some of its trails will be opening on Saturday at noon.

Thirteen of the local trails will be opening, but another eight remain closed. The Lake Superior Hiking Trail is also officially opening in some areas.
A big concern is over muddy areas that could damage trails if used too soon.

The department says that if the trail is muddy enough to leave footprints or tire tracks, you are asked to turn around and don’t use it until the trail dries.
If you hit a wet spot on an otherwise dry trail, you are asked to go through the wet area, rather than widen the trail by going around it.

The following list is from the Duluth Park and Recreation Department:
