Gateway Trail status
I hit the Gateway this afternoon to check it out. From near Hadley and 694 going east it was clear of snow till Duluth Junction, where Brown's Creek Trail branches off. From the junction heading toward Hwy. 96 there is a solid long patch of snow on the Gateway, and beyond there I don't know. So I biked east on Brown's Creek, which had plenty of snow on it but there was enough bare pavement to bike through while getting damp. I turned off at County 15 and didn't check how it was into Stillwater. May check the situation again next week.
It is clear all the way into Stillwater. When "Stay at Home" goes into effect on Saturday and the temperature is over 50, all the bicycle trails are going to have a lot of people (especially children) using them since social distancing recreation is allowed.
