We lucked in with the unseasonal hot run in November with no wind & the sun shining on a balmy afternoon ! The Lakewalk was a pleasant way to spend either 20 minutes or several hours , your choice, your time, your dime ! A lovely walk after lunch with some nice sights !

A unique boardwalk allows you to walk around the lake. It appears to get beat up with the huge waves, as there is a lot of debris along lakewalk. Something everyone has to use when in Duluth.

Beautiful views. I loved listening to the waves. Quiet and peaceful on a Saturday morning after a yoga class at Evolve.

Good any time of the year. Walk along Lake Superior - an inland sea. Plus, beautiful and charming Duluth.

I am in the lakewalk several times a month. ..it is a great place that is safe and clean to walk or run. If you have pets there are several places to grab a plastic bag and dispose of fido's little messes! One of my favorite places in Duluth...you can walk from canal park to fitgers or go as far...

Well maintained walkway for a few miles along the Lake Superior shoreline. Separate adjacent bike path, so you're not competing for space on the walking path. Absolutely stunning views.

Beautiful paved walking path. Great view of the lake. Lots of rocks for the kids to throw into the lake.

Depending on physical ability and weather conditions, it's up to you how far you want to walk/jog/bike. It was cold and windy when we visited, but the short walk we took was great.

This is a great area to walk and have beautiful scenery at the same time. I think it's 14 miles if you want to do the whole thing!
