We took the old parkway which hugs Lake Superior and for late Fall, it was a very relaxing and lovely drive. Highly recommend it.

Skyline Parkway starts at Co Hwy 3. We had a real easy time of finding it with the map we had from our hotel. Great scenery along the way. Too bad they were doing construction on some parts. Had to back track and find our way around the construction. Had plenty of signage telling you where to turn. We continued... More

We did a small section of the parkway drive and still seen quite a bit. There are a number of trails and natural areas just off of the road that make it a good relaxing attraction.

Such a beautiful drive. You see Duluth in a different light. Hawk ridge is a great viewing place. The only thing is not much parking to get out and enjoy the view.

What we did see was gorgeous, but we didn't see much. When our family took the drive, it was hard to see anything of the city through the thick greenery. (There was also road construction which made the road markers hard to follow - August 2014). Our best views were actually from the rest stop/scenic overlook when you come into... More

A beautiful view from on top of the hill. Lots to see and different perspective of Duluth living. I would recommend it

Wouldn't want to try this drive in the winter. Best in the summer. An automatic transmition was greatly appreciated too. Stopping at the lookout made the ride a reason to get to the destination

The parkway is a excellent way to get a great look at the city of Duluth and Lake Superior. The stately older homes perched on the hillside overlooking the big lake were impressive. Many outstanding viewing lookouts. Traffic was minimal. I can't wait to come back and traverse the skyline parkway during fall colors!

Despite being a foggy Sunday morning my wife and I decided to give the Skyline Parkway a shot anyway. We started out from the southern end at the rest area on I-35 and slowly made our way north towards downtown Duluth. Unfortunately, the fog took away from all the great views of the city below and there's a lot of... More

Drive slow. Take the many non-railing guarded corners with care. Enjoy the view of the North Shore, Lift Bridge, Bay, and St. Louis River. There are a few places to pull over and park if you want to take pictures. The view is just as beautiful at night as it is during the day.
