“Beautiful Cross Country Ski Trails”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Very nice wooded trails for both classic and skate skiing. I am not sure of the entire trail length, but it must be 10 to 15 kilometres. There is a beautiful 5 k section that is lit for night skiing.

The park was great, bridges were nice, trails were excellent and the running club makes an adventure out of exploring the trails.

“Lester Park, Duluth, Minnesota”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Growing up in Duluth in the '50s, Lester Park was THE place to go for family picnics. The recent flood leveled it out a bit, but the vista are still incredible.

“Golf course”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

It is a lovely golf course with many hills so a cart is truly a necessity. The club house is quaint and very old.

“Wonderful Hiking Area”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Lester is one of the better hiking areas in Duluth. There is a river that runs through the park, and in areas, there are some large cliffs that make the scenery super cool. I walked up the river in my shoes (most of it is shallow) and it was an awesome trek. The cliffs were beautiful and it was sort of adventurous hiking up the river -- I would recommend going there definitely. If you don't want to get wet -- there are plenty of trails up above the river.
