Duluth's lakewalk is a treasure any time of year. You can walk, jog, bike, roller blade, or take a horse drawn carriage ride in summer. Watch 1000 foot freight ships come into the harbor under one of the most unique aerial lift bridges in the world. Eat wonderful food at many restaurants. Visit a free nautical museum, and shop for...

It took us about an hour to do the whole canal circuit. A lot of stuff was closed for the season, but the weather was nice and it was beautiful and there was lots to see.

Beautiful area! We have a lot of fun renting bikes in the summer. Always lots to see and do here. Good for a short or long walk; could spend half an hour or all day!

If you're looking to spend some leisure time, I would recommend the lake walk. It begins at Canal Park. and winds way up the shore. Start at the piers. Spend some time there. Then, head on up to the rose gardens.

A bald eagle came down and sat on a big chunk of ice, caught a fish and went up by the lighthouse and ate it. It was the highlight of my trip since I was on a birding bus trip. It is walkable even in the winter months. Great time seeing all the different gulls and ducks also.

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.
