Our View: Enjoy the trails and respect others
January 8, 2021
Cloquet has an excellent system of recreational trails that are, for the most part, maintained by a handful of dedicated volunteers and one very dedicated and highly qualified part-time groomer hired by the city.
That’s why it’s sad to see thoughtless abuse of the trails by other, equally enthusiastic sports lovers, who often don’t even realize the damage they are causing.
The city’s Pine Valley park is the area of greatest concern and potential conflict, as it is an increasingly popular destination for all kinds of people who want to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving town.
