This drive gives you the opportunity to get an absolutely gorgeous view of the lake and part of the city of Duluth. It's an easy drive although it's busy since it's a main thoroughfare.

Very pretty to drive, wish there were some pull offs to take pictures or trim back trees, but that is nature I guess. Over all pure beauty.

The views are breathtaking. The effort to get there has a challenge at times due to the goofy roads.

The curvy, tree-lined parkway gives sneek peeks of Lake Superior and up close sightings of beautiful ridge top homes. The transition across a few highways isn't all that safe in busy traffic but manageable.

Skyline Parkway is a road that is about the entire length of the city. Some of the best views are from this Road. You will also find Enger Tower, Twin Ponds and Chester Bowl while on Skyline. Some are afraid to drive along Skyline as it drops of the edge of the road, but for the most part it is... More

This is a long trail and is quite busy with traffic though some of it. The best views are at the western end because there is an overgrowth of trees blocking the view for most of the way. It is a good view of some large homes and small homes too. Fun to see the different styles.

A really interesting short drive. You get to see all the houses up at the top of the city. Nice road.

If you are in Duluth and have some time to spare it is worth the time to take the drive. Recommend starting on what they call the east end

Very beautiful view of the city and Lake Superior. Could sit up there for hours and just watch the birds and ships.
