Very nice wooded trails for both classic and skate skiing. I am not sure of the entire trail length, but it must be 10 to 15 kilometres. There is a beautiful 5 k section that is lit for night skiing.

The park was great, bridges were nice, trails were excellent and the running club makes an adventure out of exploring the trails.

Growing up in Duluth in the '50s, Lester Park was THE place to go for family picnics. The recent flood leveled it out a bit, but the vista are still incredible.

It is a lovely golf course with many hills so a cart is truly a necessity. The club house is quaint and very old.

Lester is one of the better hiking areas in Duluth. There is a river that runs through the park, and in areas, there are some large cliffs that make the scenery super cool. I walked up the river in my shoes (most of it is shallow) and it was an awesome trek. The cliffs were beautiful and it was sort... More

This park is just breath-taking in the winter! A group of us went cross country skiing and had a fabulous time. The trails are groomed, one-way, and well kept. The trail maps are easily accessible and easy to navigate. There are a variety of skill leveled trails to choose from and you can truly make a day out of it.... More

The colors are perfect at this time of year, but you can really go anytime besides the winter and love everything about this park. The kids love the playground, the dogs love the space, and the family loves the walk and rushing water.

If you're a fan of cross-country skiing like we are, this park has some great trails. And, a few of them are lit up at night so for an added thrill and scenic beauty, try skiing here in the evenings. They do a great job grooming the trails, too.

Can enjoy park with kids or take hikes along scenic river or can take a variety of loops that make you feel far away from town and city life. River appears so different depending on time of year. Great X country ski trails in winter.

I loved this park. It was my first time hiking so I would say this is a basic path, not real long and not hard to traverse. We took our dog (leashed) while many other dogs were off leash. The views are amazing with beautiful trees, waterfalls, bridges, a gazebo deep into the park. I can't say enough about Lester... More
