Skyline Parkway

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Skyline Drive is Duluth's Scenic Byway, stretching 25 miles from Spirit Mountain (SW) to Seven Bridges Road (NE).

Our favorite segment of the drive begins at Enger Park. While the drive offers great panoramic views of the city any time of the year, it is especially attractive during the fall color season. And during this season, a stop at Enger Park to climb the observation tower is a must. Another worthwhile fall stop along the scenic drive is Hawk's Ridge to see hawks, falcons, and eagles during the fall migration.In 1997 we began our first Lake Superior Circle Tour travel adventures in Duluth, Minnesota, then traveled up the North Shore of Lake Superior and then east through Ontario. We repeated this clockwise tour in subsequent years.

In the years since, we've made a number of trips each season to various destinations along the Minnesota North Shore of Lake Superior from Duluth, Mn to Thunder Bay, Ontario.

On our travels we frequently break up the day with short hikes from 1 - 3 hours in length. Both the North Shore state parks and the Superior Hiking Trail offer an abundance of trails.

Among the scenic bonuses of trekking along the North Shore are numerous rivers with waterfalls that empty into the Lake Superior basin. So for our added scenic enjoyment and as a defined hiking goal, many of our hikes have been treks to discover and enjoy these falls - most of which we photographed. Thus waterfalls are featured in many of the photographs in these pages. . . with an occasional lakewalk, a shot from the top of several peaks that we climbed, or another scenic view.

In 2010 we added another series of recreation pages to our North Shore section of SuperiorTrails: golf course reviews. We've played and profiled a number of courses from Duluth to Grand Portage and have compiled a directory of North Shore Golf Courses

Winter is a great time to enjoy the north shore: cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, winter festivals. See our report on a winter north shore visit to some of our favorite hiking trails on snowshoes and sampling some of our favorite restaurants.
