We found this little drive and it's beauty kind of by accident. My boyfriend is a HUGE railfan and we found it while trying to find trains to photograph. There is a huge scenic overlook, and several other places to pull over and look down...More

We made a good attempt at this drive but mostly ended up wasting our time. Big sections of it were under construction or went through town and signage is sparse, if present at all. We made several attempts to reach the bird sanctuary but couldn’t...More

The view from the Skyline Parkway is so amazing - you can't really believe it if you haven't been there, and even then you are awed by the beauty and majesty!

Driving along the parkway you can see Duluth from above. Fall colors are beautiful. It is fun to imagine people taking horse drawn carriage rides along it in the past.

This roadway extends along the ridge above Duluth, and affords views of the lake and forested hills. We visited in mid-Autumn, and the leaves were a riot of color. Worth the drive.

Finding the parkway can be a bit of a challenge leaving Duluth. There is a lot of construction and detours. Once we were on our way, we passed some beautiful neighborhoods and exceptional views of Duluth and Lake Superior. There are some overlooks you can...More

Go on a sunny day and have your camera ready. A few turnouts for you to park and get some fantastic views of lake and city.

My husband did his daily morning run up and back. We went back two evenings to enjoy the views before dark. It did not disappoint if you don't mind the local teens that seem to hang out each night.

Nice drive and views. And that's about it. Since its FREE what do you have to lose? Make it a part of your visit, don't drive all the way to Duluth to see just this.

How can you not enjoy old mansions and homes overlooking largest inland lake in America. Steep hills that would not be fun in winter.

A beautiful plus, in Duluth. Old, old legends are about the lands and waters created by Great Spirits. As you drive along the Parkway, as you climb or descend, take a look at what Man (mankind) can never create! Viewing a Sunrise or Sunset can...More
