It is is a real nice walk a bit busy. The first section is under construction but not bad at all.

Spent a lot of time avoiding all of the walkers. The boardwalk is under construction, so we had to take sidewalks. Decided not to go into the residential area so turned around at 5 miles.

This is a very easy walk! You can walk, bike, roller blade, etc. There are many beaches and shops to explore. No wildlife/escape from the city, but as others have said, it is beautiful and peaceful to walk during sunrise/sunset.

One of the best running paths I’ve ever run on. The scenery is great, the path is long- great for marathon training! Running, walking, roller blading, bicycling! In the summer, in canal park you can rent different types of bicycles. It is very dog friendly!

I really enjoy the lake walk (the 3.5 miles by the waterside). I recommend going early enough to see the sun rise.

This is not a hike but a long walk. Only 3 miles of the trail is along the water the rest is along a main road with lots of traffic. Don’t think I’ll do the part not along water again.

You can run, walk, or even road bike the lake walk. Currently it's under construction due to a severe storm this past year that tore it apart so a small piece of it is blocked off but you can still get through! Just have to share the way with bicyclists. I've spent my whole life on this lake walk enjoying it and it never gets old.

Absolutely wonderful trail that runs along the southwestern most tip of Lake Superior. It's paved and ends in Canal Park, a staple of Duluth. It connects with other trails in the city so you can use it to go for a nice bike ride or run!

Good to hike if you live nearby. This trail would make a fun date night as well. The trail snakes along the lake and passes most touristy nearby downtown businesses. Lots of options to explore the shore and grab food. It can get crowded in the summer.
