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.

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
