The Friends of the Lakewalk took advantage of the sunshine on Saturday to get out and do some spring cleaning.

The group heads out to the Lakewalk every spring to clear trash and tidy up their favorite Duluth attraction. The trail was extended last year to reach Brighton Beach making more work for the Friends of the Lakewalk.

The volunteers said it is worth it to keep the trail pristine.

“I think everybody in Duluth loves the Lakewalk so we're just trying to keep it beautiful for our visitors and for the people who use it every day,” Susan Goltz said.

She and her husband were the only ones to hit the far eastern section of the Lakewalk, but more clean up days are scheduled in future. If you want to get involved find the Friends of the Lakewalk here on Facebook.
