Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The City of Duluth's Parks and Recreation Department is asking the public to refrain from using city hiking trails, snowmobile trails and cross country ski trails.

The trails have become soft and are now more vulnerable to being damaged with deep ruts and possible erosion because of the spring thaw.

The public can help prevent further damage by staying off of the trails until warmer temperatures and drier weather improve trail conditions.

A notice regarding the reopening of the trails will be provided as soon as the condtions permit.

Trails that remain open to the public at this time are the Lakewalk, Munger Trail and the Western Waterfront Trail. In addition, the far eastern part of Skyline Parkway near Hawks Ride is a good place to walk as well as the far western end of Skyline Parkway, west of Spirit Mountain. These portions of Skyline are still closed to vehicular traffic.
