This is a great activity to do outdoors in Duluth, particularly if you are on a budget. During the winter months it can be chilly, but during the summer it is a great walk with amazing views.

This is a nice paved trail with good surrounding scenery and offshoots to restaurants and other destinations. You can start at the Canal and make it to the Leif Erickson Rose garden in less than an hour.

Came to Duluth to cross country ski but since there is no snow walked the trail several times. Even when you leave the lake the trail continues to be interesting. also right now the trail is not icy which makes it safe for running, etc.

After spending the day around the canal, we set off on a walk down a trail by the lake. Little did we know it would be one of the highlights of our trip. We walked as far as the Leif Eriksson park and the rose garden. What a happy surprise. The walk back at sunset was beautiful.

We went for a beautiful lake walk early in the morning in late October. Lake Superior & the Ariel Bridge were great to see in the morning sun. We tried to go for a walk the night before but it was SO windy the lake looked more like an ocean than a lake. What a difference a few hours made.... More

Fun to walk and look at Lake Superior. Many entry point and walk at will. Never super crowded and a must do if you are nearby. Walk a couple of blocks or a couple of miles. Watch the ships and sailboats in season. See the Lift Bridge in the distance.

The Lakewalk is a great attraction in itself. The views are great and there is some history. There are historical markers along the walk and a number of war memorials. If you are on the Lakewalk, the Aerial Lift Bridge and Maritime Visitors Center are at the east end of the Walk. These attractions are both "must see's" and make... More

What a great way to get around the city especially with Lake Superior at your side. Plenty of places to stop to eat or to rest at a park. This is a great walk or bike path for anyone of any age. There are a few gentle rolling hills that meander up and down and plenty of places to go... More
