When I visit Duluth I immediately take this walk as it is safe and so accessible from all the lodging on the lake.

The walkway in the Canal Park vicinity was heavily damaged by two vicious storms and it will take some time to repair. However, it still is a wonderful place to see the Lake (and other people) while you get in a 1-5 or more mile...More

Beautiful gardens and view of Lake Superior. We were fortunate to see a ship go through the Elevated Bridge! Walk was also interesting with little hills and lots of beautiful trees. Well groomed.

A must visit for Duluth Canal Park area! Beautiful walk, Friendly Faces, and amazing views! This was so much fun to do and the random history was nice!

We love strolling on the Lake Walk between Canal Park and the Rose Garden. It's a scenic, easily accessible trail. Sadly, severe storms in the winter of 2018 tore apart sections of the trail, and it sounds as if repairs will happen soon.

This walk is so well done you must do it. Perfect way to stretch the legs if you’re just driving thru, or perfect summer stroll. Walk from the canal park all the way to the rose garden ( must do). Best city park area ever!

The paved path is good all around Canal Park and between Canal Park and downtown. The separate boardwalk beside the paved path was washed out in places, but what remains is good for standing to view the lake without being... More
