Lovely Walk

To bad it was 90 plus degrees, we would have walked for longer. Fortunately the lake breeze was cool. Could use more benches for days like that hot-hot day,

Great place to walk, bike, or people watch, right along beautiful Lake Superior. The Lakewalk starts at the Lift Bridge and heads north. There are horse and carriage rides and bikes for rent. The bikes are the type that hold four people so you can bike up and down the Lakewalk with your kids. You can follow the Lakewalk up... More

The Lakewalk is an absolute must for indoor or outdoor type people. It's a beautiful walk along Lake Superior. It's clean. It's relaxing watching the boats and ships coming and going. There is the Corp of Engineers museum which was totally fascinating and it was free. Great sightseeing place. And afterwards stop in at the Chocolate Factory for a pit... More

Gorgeous, well maintained walk along the lake. What a gem for this city! Lots of dogs, skaters, and bikers, but there are separate paths for bikes and walkers. An enjoyable Sunday afternoon in this beautiful spot.

The lake walk is perfect for getting in a short or long run (or walk) at any pace. My recommendation is to start at the canal and head towards Fitgers (and farther if you can). The view coming back is amazing! I stopped many times to take pictures of the bridge and the lake. The lake walk provides a wooded... More

I had no idea this was so long and ended up having a wonderful run - little traffic on the path, well-shaded in many areas away from downtown, nicely maintained. It's a hidden gem right in the open!

All along the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, get out and walk on the Lakewalk, for some breathtaking views, some shopping, and eats!! You can stop for ice cream, stop to shop in an art gallery, and don't forget to bring your furry friends!! Dogs are welcome, just remember to pick up the doo, doo. We had a great... More

This is great 1 mile walk along beautiful Lake Superior. There are benches frequently spaced along the walk. There is a paved trail as well as a boardwalk.
