Update of City of Duluth Trail Conditions
While it doesn't compare to the destruction of major roads, bridges, and homes, another of the hardest hit areas for the Twin Ports 2012 Flood were our parks and trails. Unfortunately, we're having perfect weather to get out and hike or play around on the trails. Many are closed. Get the latest here from the City of Duluth regarding the latest conditions of the trail conditions.
Mission Creek Trail System closed for good until COGGS builds their new trails. The "creek" now looks like Knife River. Road GONE to debris catcher, mud slides on trails. MNDOT to replace road (will be building a new road) All trails inaccessible due to slides, etc.
Irving Bike Path - is undercut and part of the trail is gone. Closed until further notice.
