The skyline parkway gives a nice view of the harbor and city below, but other than that there is not much else to it.

Great area, plenty of pull off to view the St. Louis River and the Great Lakes. Good place to take pictures of Duluth, Spirit Mountain, trains and bridges.

Simply amazing views of the entire Duluth Port and city. At sunset, the sun is at your back and the views and photo possibilities are awesome. Easy to get to and excellent roadway even in winter.

It's a little hard to find but once you do you'll marvel at the view...You may not be able to see Russia from here but you'll see Wisconsin

There are periodic nice views along the parkway, but in many places the views are obscured by foliage in summer. The route is difficult to follow in places, even with directions. The northern-most part (scenic bridges) is closed in the winter.

DO not miss this drive. Just make sure your driver watches the road and there is many wayside stops along the way with views that never stop. You will see all of Duluth from the North to the South and to the East into Wisconsin....More

This park/highway runs along the ridge overlooking Duluth. Neat views of the harbor/lake/city and beautiful nature looking uphill. Small waterfalls and forest, plus trails are things you should not miss. You can hike, drive or bike AND it is FREE!

I travel this road frequently and live very close, and actually lived on it before I got married. You can see the Ships coming or going, a nightly view is beautiful. You have a wonderful view of the famous bridge, without having to venture into...More
