“Great nature viewing!”

Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory
Ranked #21 of 96 things to do in Duluth
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

The expensive views from the ridge overlooking Duluth and Lake Superior are fabulous! Take time to do some trail hiking and nature viewing. Bring binoculars since bird life is abundant. Great local spot!

Depending on the time of year, this is not to missed type of place to see migrations of small birds all the way to birds of prey. You also get a magnificent view of the greatest inland fresh water lake in America! A little confusing to find, for a stranger, but locals all know how to direct you.

My recent visit just happened to be on a warm day when the city and the lake were completely obscured by fog. No birds migrating or even one flying by. It is a very nice location and in the past I have seen a few hawks flying by from here.

In Duluth this is an iconic drive where you can see up the North Shore make the drive and there are numerous places to get out and walk around in nature. Well worth it

Staff and volunteers on site are very helpful - types of birds, how to track, what they do and where they go etc. They have binoculars that they will lend out. Great views over the lake. Nice hiking trails in the area as well.
