Despite the beautiful weather the Northland has seen recently, officials with Duluth's parks and recreation department are asking the public to stay off any natural surface city trails.

On Monday, they said that all hiking, biking, and skiing trails are closed until the soil is completely dried out to help minimize damage.

The city says they will give notice when the trails are acceptable to use again. Trail updates are available by calling the trails hotline at 218-730- 4323. 

In the meantime, the city recommends using the Lakewalk and the Western Waterfront Trail during this time; they remain open for use due to their hardened surfaces.
