Duluth has some great trails and areas to bike and walk. June 7th is National Trails Day, and the city is looking for volunteers to help clean and prepare the trails, walkways, and biking areas for public use.
The Duluth Cross Country Ski Club will be doing trail maintenance on the Lester-Amity ski trails from 9-12 pm. Volunteers should meet at Lester Park at the bottom parking lot off Lester River Road and Superior Street. The group will hike to the lighted section just past the overlook and brush about 1.5k of trail. Tools will be provided, but participants can bring your own. Dress appropriately for the weather and for outdoors work. Work boots, water and bug repellent is recommended. For more information email Andre Watt at Trails@duluthxc.com. Treats provided at the end of work.
The Cyclists of Gitchie Gumee Shores (COGGS) will be working on multi-use hiking/biking trails in Lester Park from 10-2 pm. Volunteers should meet at the first bridge of the Seven Bridges Road, just up Occidental Boulevard off Superior Street. Dress appropriately for the weather and outdoors work. Please bring work boots, gloves, bug repellent, and water. COGGS will supply tools and Subway sandwiches for lunch. For more information email Waylon Munch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
