We did a lot of walking on the Lakewalk and boardwalk in Duluth. After walking down Canal Park we checked out the Aerial Bridge and all 3 lighthouses. We finally had a very late dinner, and then walked on the boardwalk back to our Lodge. It was very safe, and trailed right along Lake Superior's shoreline. In the morning we walked to Leif Erikson Park and The Rose Garden. It was foggy and gave a completely different look to the lake. The path is shared with bikers, and four- seater pedal bikes, but it does not present a problem. The area is very clean and easy to follow. We came back through town in front of Fitger's Inn, walked on an elevated walkway and then picked the Lakewalk up again. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing walk, beautiful views and flowers.

What a great way to open up the shoreline and keep it beautiful for everyone. The Lakewalk is a great way to see the lake, the lift bridge and get a good view of Duluth. Plenty of room for walkers and bikers. Thanks, Duluth, for creating the Lakewalk.

The Duluth Lakewalk is a superb, must see while in Duluth. Starting in Canal Park, it stretches about 7 1/2 miles up the north shore. In Canal Park you can rent strollers, bicycles, pedal carriages etc if you need/want. We chose to walk and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The paved trail is immaculately maintained complete with a center line. There are numerous benches and picnic tables dotted along the path as well as public restrooms. Along the path their are numerous places you can access the Lake's shore. As if the natural scenery was not enough, there is fabulous attention to detailed gardens and decor. The trail parallels the scenic railway and if you are lucky you will be treated with a passing antique sightseeing passenger train as it slowly makes its own way up the shore. There is also a good chance you will see any number of boats including huge ocean liners making their way into or out of the port thru the Lift Bridge. One of the best features of the trail is that you can get on or off at virtually any point. There are many convenient parking areas along the way. There are also a great many shops and restaurants to visit just off the path. Duluth has done a fantastic job with this attraction and we are looking forward to visiting it at every season.

There are beautiful views here in Duluth from this walkway. Seeing the lighthouse, gardens, and waters of Lake Superior make this a special treat.
