Morning walk w/ dog from hotel, great views of lake, ships, sunrise. Beautiful parks, also some nice gravel/rock beaches off the trail along shoreline. Convenient pedestrian bridges to neighborhoods. Interesting businesses as you approach Duluth from the North.

We were in Duluth for one night and enjoyed the Lakewalk. It was pleasant to watch the sailboats and huge freighters as they passed under the bridge. There were benches to sit on and rest when we tired of walking.

Well-maintained pedestrian boardwalk in the "older" 3 mile section; the newer section is just paved for both bikes and humans. Several "stops" along the way, but some, like the Rose Garden or the Fitgers complex, have lots of steps over the highway, so you need to chain your bike up on the lake side and walk over. Transition from older... More

Did many a cycle and walk along here during my visit and never tired of the view. It is a special place for many people and I can see why

We walked along the lake from the museum at least three times during our stay in Duluth and never tired of it. In the area by the hotels facing the lake, it tends to be a little crowded, but good people watching. The crowd thins out once you go around the curve and head north up the lake. Nice way... More

Fun time had by all best of all it was free. We enjoyed walking on the lake walk and being able to view scenery, touch lake superior, and walk through the many parks!

We liked it all - except perhaps the traffic (auto). We were mostly interested in finding a place to eat - and there are too many choices on the Lakewalk! We especially loved the Rose Garden and Leif Erickson Park.
