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.

We traveled after the leaves budded so it wasn't as amazing as it could have been. Beautiful overlooks abound. Signage isn't great though. We got lost a couple of times.

This is a great drive to get a good view of the Duluth Harbor and Lake Superior. Be sure to stop at Enger Tower for an even more 360 degree view of the area.

We made a good attempt at this drive but mostly ended up wasting our time. Big sections of it were under construction or went through town and signage is sparse, if present at all. We made several attempts to reach the bird sanctuary but couldn’t find it, also probably because of all the construction. Enger Tower ended up being the... More

When I first visited Duluth, I got lost and drove down this road in the snow and dark. It is awesome. Coming from the hilltop ypur driving through neighbor hoods by pleasant, pretty houses and through the forest. The road switches back and fourth down the hillside, The forest opens up and there below lies Duluth all lit up and... More
