When one lives in an area you often take things for granted, but the Skyline Parkway is always a great drive anytime of the year to realize why I live in Duluth. From the beginning at SW of Spirit Mt through the city to Old Hwy 61 there is so much to see and enjoy. Is a must drive when... More

The Skyline Parkway provides some of the best views of Duluth and the lake and is readily accessible. We traveled about 6-8 miles of the total 26 and would have liked to have seen it all.

If you miss the ocean you can drive up here and watch the waves. I was surprised at how big they actually were. It reminded me of being on a mountain watching the waves over the Atlantic (maybe not quite a mountain) This will definitely give you your ocean fix until you can get to the real thing.

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.

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.

Fun to do and not a big commitment. Beautiful view out over the big lake looking more or less NE or SE depending on how the road curves.

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