“Great view from the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is another absolute must-do/see when you're in Duluth. The views looking down on the city for miles and miles of this scenic drive are amazing. They probably couldn't build a road like this today. Stop at the little pull-outs for a closer look over the edge of the old glacial lake shoreline back in the ice age. Stop at Enger Tower, too, for some exercise climbing to the top and for an incredible view of the whole area.

“WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Be prepared for breath-taking views of Lake Superior and enjoy the turn-of-the-centruy architecture of many fine homes. A must-see when in the Twin Cities.

“Beautiful drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

If you want to see the best views of Duluth, this is the way to do it. It will take you an hour or so to drive it, but you will see some of the best lake vistas there are.

“Decent drive, but didn't seem very bike or pedestrian friendly.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

nice view, but wish I could have walked it or biked instead to see things better. Stop at Enger Park/Tower, that's worth the drive.

“Wonderful drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you have visited Duluth and not taken the Skyline Parkway, you are missing a really nice drive. The parkway runs along the entire city perimeter at the top of the hill. Even after the rough weather in June, the Parkway is outstanding.
