Duluth Hiking Trails Too Wet To Walk On

Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The weather may be perfect for a nice run through Duluth's many trails, but the city is asking people not to use them because of muddy conditions.

The City of Duluth’s Parks and Recreation Department says that due to the annual spring thaw, many of Duluth's hiking, snowmobile and cross country ski trails are soft and vulnerable to deep ruts and erosion.

You can help these trails from damage by not using the trails until temperatures warm back up and we have drier weather conditions.

However, Duluth trails that are still open for public use include the Lakewalk, the Munger Trail, the Western Waterfront Trail, the far eastern part of Skyline Parkway near Hawksridge and the far western end of the Skyline Parkway west of Spirit Mountain.

The public will be notified once all of Duluth's trails are in good condition and reopened for public use.
