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

“Lester Park, Duluth, Minnesota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

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.

“Golf course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

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

“Wonderful Hiking Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

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 of adventurous hiking up the river -- I would recommend going there definitely. If you don't want to get wet -- there are plenty of trails up above the river.

“Beautiful Cross Country Ski Trails!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

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. What a serene, peaceful park!!
