I love that there are places in the middle of Duluth, like Hartley, where I can get outside and be in the middle of the woods while also still being in the city. Hartley is gorgeous all season round with things to do like hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and running. The Nature Center has events, camps and provides a place to go inside if need be. I enjoy coming here often and getting away by myself or connecting with friends.

Great trails right in the city of Duluth. The nature center is very kid-focused, but there are often activities for everyone. Rock Knob is a great trail!

The center and grounds are great! The preschool is a good idea, but is very lacking in behavioral management skill ... disappointing.

I always feel like I can find a place to be alone and watch nature. It's perfect.

Literally no features on the entire trail. A dirt trail that leads through the woods is not necessarily a mountain biking trail, or at least not one that is fun to ride.
