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.

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
