When I'm traveling I search out places that provide great views (Philly is nice, but scores low in the vista scale). The Parkway does, indeed, offer great views of the Duluth area and Lake Superior, but it falls short when it comes to signage: it's either not there, easily missed, or too close to the turn you have to make....

Stunning views of Duluth, Minnesota, Lake Superior and the St. Louis harbor. Choose a beautiful day, put on your hiking boots, take your binoculars and camera to take in the whole experience! Wish it had a map w/ instructions for turns.

The views are breathtaking. You can often see eagles, I go here every time I go to Duluth. We went at night this trip and the lights are fascinating. GO!

This Parkway winds along the western hills of Duluth, giving you a wonderful view of the city and the harbor. There are a few spots to pull over and take a longer look, otherwise you are mostly driving.

Eventhough the parkway afforded some awesome views, it was hard to find, as direction signs were covered up by unkept brush and Duluth street names had the habit of changing every few blocks. This is a real bummer when you looking for the parkway half way up a steep hill. The worst thing was the fact that all the overlooks... More

We stopped here on our way to Duluth. What a view. Simply beautiful. We didn't stay too long but enjoyed the view and used their very clean restrooms.

This skyline parkway is Duluth's version of Los Angeles Mulholland drive, sans all the rich houses. The views are fantastic. The west end of the skyline is better marked and easy to follow. There is also a visitors center for Minnesota that is worth the stop in. I would have given it five stars except I found the route very... More

Beautiful views but the signage is not the best and we ended up off the parkway a couple times. The views are excellent and there is plenty of spots to take photos.

My wife and I visited Duluth for the first time in July and cannot stop raving about the city. We took the Skyline Parkway the first night in town and could not have been more pleased with the views. This was a great way to start our visit to the city. Very impressive.
