Great view, and scenic drive.

Saw cars driving up and down that hill, and knew we needed to check it out for ourselves. It was worth it!

This drive is a beautiful way to enter Duluth. It lies directly off the I 35 and affords one beautiful views of Duluth harbor from easy to navigate parking areas along the highway. The Thompson Rest Area has an extensive travel information center to enhance your North Shore experience.

The Skyline Parkway provides some of the best views of Duluth and the lake and is readily accessible. We traveled about 6-8 miles of the total 26 and would have liked to have seen it all.

If you miss the ocean you can drive up here and watch the waves. I was surprised at how big they actually were. It reminded me of being on a mountain watching the waves over the Atlantic (maybe not quite a mountain) This will definitely give you your ocean fix until you can get to the real thing.

This drive gives you the opportunity to get an absolutely gorgeous view of the lake and part of the city of Duluth. It's an easy drive although it's busy since it's a main thoroughfare.

Very pretty to drive, wish there were some pull offs to take pictures or trim back trees, but that is nature I guess. Over all pure beauty.

The views are breathtaking. The effort to get there has a challenge at times due to the goofy roads.
