After a couple days of hiking on the North Shore we wanted to find a hike closer to Duluth. We stumbled upon a trail at the end of the road near Park Point. See separate Trip Advisor page for "Park Point Nature Trail." Once there the trail is a bit hard to find. Just go to the airport, and then... More

Park Point, Duluth, is an island created by the Duluth Ship Canal's severing of the Minnesota Point peninsula. As we drove through Canal Park and across the Aerial Lift Bridge, we followed a 5-mile street that divides Lake Superior beachfront property from St Louis River beachfront property. Ignoring the closed beaches, except to note a huge cluster of seagulls all... More

Clean freshwater beach. It is great for kids to run loose look for agates, splash in Lake Superior and watch the ore boats go bye....

The vastness of the lake. Sandy, warm (in the sun, for a little while) beaches. Driftwood, dogs and waves. A great visit, and a real feel for the maritime culture around the lake.

This is a beautiful sandy beach in the summer. The water is super cold, but worth dipping a toe in. Last time we were there it was winter and the lake was amazing then, too.

A very nice spot to meditate, or just people watch. Not as clean as it used to be, since many storms have helped driftwood and other debris to wash ashore, but still a very nice area to visit.

Nice sand, beautiful water (although typically very cold!). Good place to sit on a blanket and reflect or have a picnic. Don't miss it.

Park Point is a great place to visit for several reasons- first of all you get to cross the lift bridge which is a pretty unique experience. The park itself has an awesome beach and trail where you can explore. Beware the wind, however! We were there in October and it was a bit brisk! It's easily the best place... More
