We love to take this drive along the top of Duluth. Let's you look down at Lake Superior and the St Louis river. This drive let's you appreciate the beauty of the city that is built on a hill.

Absolutely beautiful to take the skyline parkway. You can drive from east to west or the other way around. Very good views on Duluth and Lake Superior. In the informationcenter they were very helpful with maps and information.

It was a cold day in Duluth and we decided to take a scenic drive. We found this on Trip Advisor and started the drive off of Hwy 53 and went West. The view was great and the road curves around the top of Duluth with several nice scenic overlooks that you can stop at. We came out right by... More

Beautiful overlook scenery. There are areas to stop and observe, but the view is very tempting for the driver to take his/her eyes off the road. Anyone in your car afraid of heights (my wife) should be put in the trunk. LOL

The most beautiful car ride you will ever go on! The road has a super long stretch that views Duluth from every angle.

Skyline parkway has some beautiful scenic overlooks. One of my favorites is by Enger Tower. There are three overlooks in succession that have a expansive view of the east and west side of Duluth, the St. Louis bay and Lake superior. While there Enger tower is a sight to see and the trip to the top offers 360 degree panoramic... More

The views from this vista are incredible. You will never forget the simple, safe trip you can make up the roadway and sit admiring the sights and sounds of Duluth. It's magical, peaceful, and serene. I even go up here to "get away from it all." It's a place for many pictures!

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.
