No bikes, hikes, pups

Duluth Parks and Recreation would like to remind the public that the city’s cross-country ski trails are off limits to hiking, pets and winter bicycles, commonly called “fat bikes.”

For those who crave time on their fat bike or time out for a hike, the city reminds all that the Lakewalk regularly is cleared of snow, making it a wonderful place for those activities.

The city has 55 kilometers of skiing on six cross-country trails. Those trails remain in good condition for cross-country skiers only if everyone does their part to follow trail etiquette, including skiing in the indicated direction, leaving pets at home, filling any holes and smoothing the track if you fall and using the trails only for cross-country skiing without pets.

Maps and brochures for each trail are available at the Duluth Parks and Recreation office at Duluth City Hall, 411 W. First St., or online at
