Reminder from City on Winter Trail Usage
The city recently issued a reminder about appropriate use of winter trails in Duluth:
# # #
City reminds the public hiking on city cross country ski trails is prohibited.
Duluth Parks and Recreation reminds the public that hiking on city cross country ski trails is prohibited. For most of the winter the public has been walking on cross country ski trails with ease and comfort due to the lack of snow, but as of last week all cross country ski trails are now packed and tracked for skiers. Walkers are encouraged to use places such as the Lakewalk which is cleared of snow on a regular basis.
A reminder in order to help maintain good skiing conditions all cross country skiers are requested to follow good trail etiquette:
• Ski in indicated direction
• Leave pets at home
• Reminder that hikers and dogs are not allowed on groomed ski trails.
• Try to fill any holes and smooth track if you should fall.
The City of Duluth has 55 kilometers of skiing on six cross country ski trails. These trails provide a great skiing experience for every level of skier. Maps and brochures for each trail are available at the Duluth Parks & Recreation Office at 12 East Fourth Street, or at www.duluthmn.gov/parks
For information on the condition of City of Duluth trails, call the Ski Hot Line at 730-4321 or on the Duluth Parks Facebook page.
