This was wonderful for our four kids that needed exercise. Interesting and fun. Watch out for the poison ivy though.

I love this trail. It starts at the end of park point and travels through a beautiful old growth forest. The trail eventually ends up at the Superior Canal. I have hiked this trail during the spring summer and fall. It is easy to imagine the natives roaming this unique area before the land was corrupted. Many times I have... More

Beautiful! In all weather it is worth a trip. It was 45 degree, raining, and windy and it was perfect. Wind, waves, sand...nothing like Lake Superior. And then a quick hop back to coffee shops and lunch at Canal Park. How can you beat it?

We took a great Sunday morning hike here. We parked our car at the end of the point by the airport. Trail is to the left and you literally are walking in beautiful woods and terrain. So many natural wildflowers....berries...wildlife..old old buildings also are tucked away,not in use anymore but it makes you think back to when they were. We... More

This hike has everything. It's loads of fun, very flat, and much to see along the way. We saw birds and a fox, and ran into naturalist looking for endangered shorebirds. Be sure to go to the end!

This is mostly a gorgeous trail that follows the old growth forest. The trail is excellent with the exception of a number of sandy areas that make hiking in sandals, even Keens, really annoying. We followed the shoreline on the way back and it was absolutely beautiful. Its a mystery how Duluth can have such wild places right next to... More

Other than being eaten alive by mosquitoes we had a lovely walk all the way out to the end of the point. Fairly easy, though often narrow, trail (mostly flat), although in parts you are walking sand dunes. The pine forest was pleasant.

This land is too delicate to have all these people trampling all over it. Bad enough that they allow people to live on this sand spit and build and develop it into oblivion but to encourage people to trample the dunes - poison ivy and all - is heartbreaking.

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.
