This seven mile sand bar is one of the longest in the world. Climb the dunes and dip your toes in Lake Superior. We were there in mid-July, and the water was COLD!! Beautiful view, and lighthouse ruins a short walk away.

A lovely walk through a northern forest...but with dunes and waves. Keep a look out for poison ivy, though.

I love walking this trail! Usually go twice a year. There's sand, trees and interesting objects along the way. Also several different paths and you can pop out onto the beach any time! Worth going all the way to the Superior end. Views of lake Superior or the harbor side.

Park near the airport at the very end of Park Point. Walk towards the the airport gate - and there you will find an entry to a trail so tranquil. At the end of the trail - you will find the natural shipping canal and find Wisconsin just a stones throw away (aka: Wisconsin Point). Take your camera to capture... More

Been to Duluth many times but just discovered this gem the last time we were there. We had always driven to "the end" of the point but it wasn't until I checked my phone's satellite maps that I realized that the end of the road is nowhere near the end of the point! If you want to get to the... More

We began our hike in a dense fog, picking up the trail on a boardwalk that straddles a beautiful landscape of grassy sand dunes. Once we hit the sand, we struggled for footing in the loose sand. Since it was early April, the shores were still obscured with thick, chunky ice, covered in spots by the iron-colored sand of the... More

Duluth has a wonderful lakefront on Lake Superior. There is a great walking path, about 2 miles long, with plenty of sites along one side, and the expanse of Lake Superior along the other. A relatively large beach area has course sand and pebbles. The water was cold in September, but there were a few brave swimmers. A separate area... More
