The City of Duluth is looking for help from the general public to stop the illegal trail development and use in the area within Central Park, just below Enger Park.  According to city officials, authorities have had to respond to reports of both trail development and riding within the Central Park area - which is against the law.  City leaders are also concerned that this activity might spread to other park areas  - like Magney Snively, Spirit Mountain Recreation Area, or Hartley Park.

If you have any information to share in regards to who is doing this, you're encouraged to contact the Duluth Police Department to report illegal building or riding on unsanctioned trails.  City officials also remind everyone that vegetation removal and unauthorized trail clearing are prohibited within any park property.  At the same time, they point out that bicycles can only be operated on roadways, parking areas, and designated trails or paths - which are clearly marked as approved for such use.  Riding on unsanctioned trails destroys vegetation and causes erosion.

As a resource to would-be trail users, the City of Duluth offers an online map of legitimate, sanctioned trails.  Click here to see it.
