Great place to jog or just walk. The Lakewalk goes from Canal Park up to Leif Erickson Park. Nice workout.

The lake was beautiful from this LakeWalk view. We rented the double surreys and rode around the lake on the Lakewalk path.

Once what was a "catch all" of junk has been transformed to an absolutely tranquil corner of Duluth! Grab a rental bike for 2-6, hit the lakewalk for a tranquil walk or a inspiring run! If you need a sweet treat? walk up a flight of steps to be taken to the best Malt Shoppe in the city! (hope you... More

Any time of year is fun to take a walk, short or long, on the boardwalk. You can look at the nearby hotels, walk through the parks, check out local taverns, restaurants, coffeehouses and retail stores, or sit on a bench and marvel at Lake Superior. It is one of the better accomplishments made in Duluth and continues to be... More

A great way to walk off beer and burgers at Fitgers. Scenic, peaceful, and fun! You can enter the Lake Walk right below the parking ramp at Fitgers. There are a number of plaques along the way that tell the history of Duluth's Harbor.

Walking on the Lakewalk is very nice. Beautiful view on the lake. It was a bit out of season, so lot of restaurants were closed.

I was here for business and had to log my 10,000 fitbit steps. I started my walk on the trail at East High School. Their parking lot is right beside the trail. I walked toward town abut 2 miles one way, 4 miles RT. The walk is mostly level (some small slopes) and paved. It is wide enough for plenty... More

I really enjoyed Lakewalk. It was super cold and windy when I visited last week and I honestly thought that it was going to be the same yesterday, but when I got to Duluth, it was warm and beautiful!

Lakewalk is a paved walk that runs the whole length of Canal Park along the water's edge. You can take or buy a lunch or ice cream and enjoy it on one of the many benches on the walk. It's a good place to take in the views of Lake Superior, the Aerial Lift Bridge, people-watching and strolling on a... More
