Address: Hartley Nature Center, 3001 Woodland Ave. Duluth, MN 55803

Directions: Arriving in Duluth on I-35 North, take the 21st Ave. East exit. Turn Left at the end of the off-ramp and proceed straight up the hill on 21st Ave. East. Take a right at the top of the hill when the road merges with Woodland Ave. Stay on Woodland Ave. for approximately 2.3 miles. After you go through a stop sign at the intersection of Woodland Ave and Oxford St. you will start to go up another hill, and midway up that hill after a couple of curves you will see a sign on the left that says "Hartley Park and Nature Center." Turn left, come down our long driveway and you'll have arrived!

Please be extra careful when driving in the park, as there are usually many kids and other park users here, and some of our trails do use the driveway for access to certain parts of the park.

Parking at the Hartley Nature Center is limited. Please carpool as much as possible. Parking is also available at Concordia Lutheran Church, 2501 Woodland Ave, just a short walk from the Park.
