Hartley Park is 660 acres of forested hills and wetlands with a variety of scenic hiking and biking trails. These trails pass through beautiful forests with breathtaking views of Lake Superior and the St. Louis River Valley. Hartley Park’s trails are open to hiking, bicycling, cross country skiing, and dog walking – with a few simple reminders and rules.
Permitted trail uses are marked with the appropriate signage at key intersections. Trails may be closed when conditions are wet and muddy to prevent damage and erosion. Closures will be publicized; however, please respect the environment by using good judgement and avoid wet segments when using the trails. ATV’s, motorcycles, and snowmobiles are not permitted at any time.
Old Hartley Road is the main route through the park. This is a north-south trail and open to hiking and biking, with shared access to the ski trails.
Trails located east of Old Hartley Road are open to hiking except during the winter cross country ski season, when these trails are groomed and therefore closed to hiking and dog walking. Biking is not permitted on these trails at any time.
Trails located west of Old Hartley Road are open to hiking and biking at all times.
Please observe good trail etiquette when meeting others on the trail. Remember to leash your dog for the safety of your pet and others. Other trail users do not know that your dog is friendly and will not bite or jump, and dogs may collide with bicycles. Pick up after your pet too!
