by JS Realty

 

 

 


As a city that was voted the winner of Outside magazine’s Best Town 2014 (see more info here & here), Duluth has a lot to brag about. With hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, and more, miles of lakeshore, and numerous beautiful parks, the city of Duluth has an incredible amount of outdoor recreation options to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites and the highlights of each.

Lester Park. Following Amity Creek and Lester River, Lester Park features many miles of wonderful trails for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding. The mountain bike trails here hosted the Great Hawk Chase Minnesota Mountain Bike series soon after completion in 2010 and remains a favorite among mountain bike enthusiasts. A smaller area of the park contains a playground, open field with nets, and picnic tables for individuals and families to enjoy.

 

 

Canal Park & Park Point. Close to many small shops and restaurants, Canal Park is a great place to take a walk on the Lakewalk, watch ships pass under the Aerial Lift Bridge, or enjoy the beautiful view of the lighthouse and Lake Superior. With many miles of waterfront walkways, the Lakewalk is a fantastic place to take a leisurely stroll or go for a run. Along the way, there are many wonderful parks to stop at and enjoy including Leif Erikson Park and The Duluth Rose Garden. Head the other way from Canal Park, across the Lift Bridge, and you’ll be on the world’s largest freshwater sandbar, known as Park Point. With miles of beach along the peninsula and a great park at the end, Park Point is a destination that can’t be missed.  

 

Superior Hiking Trail. Rated the number 2 hiking trail in the U.S. by Backpacker magazine, the Superior Hiking Trail’s current mile count is at 296 miles. Ranging from the Canadian border to Duluth mostly along the ridge line of Lake Superior, the trail is filled with streams, ravines, pine forests, and beautiful views of Lake Superior. With trail head parking lots every 5-10 miles and 93 campsites with no fees, reservations, or permits required to hike or camp, the Superior Hiking trail is ideal for day hikes as well as longer backpack camping trips.
