Watch Brave Individuals Skate The Icy Trails of Duluth’s Lester Park
This time of year can be frustrating for folks that enjoy getting outdoors on area trails. Tree shade, up-and-down temperatures, and the fact trails have been packed down with snow and ice all winter keep these pathways from melting as quickly as other areas. The icy conditions make trails hard to enjoy – unless you’re these folks.
Andrew Kilness and a group of his friends shared a video on Facebook of themselves skating the trails at Lester Park. If you’ve been on the trails at Lester Park, you know the terrain offers plenty of ups and downs as well as curves and obstacles (plus areas that are already melted that you need to jump or run over) to make things interesting.
While this looks like a lot of fun, definitely make sure you have all of the appropriate safety gear strapped on your head and body before you decide to try this for yourself.
