Hiking in Lester Park

This is a great place to hike and take in the views! We hiked both on the trail above the river as well as on the frozen river. The views are great and it is right in town.

Lester Park, just off of Highway 61 in Duluth is a real jewel for those who like a pretty walk.The trail begins right beside the park carpark and wanders along the Lester River.

Spent a Sunday morning exploring the trails of Lester Park. Amazing views and gorgeous scenery. The trials were great for any age. They were not too busy, but felt very family friendly.

I was there attending a wedding but there is plenty of things to do there! You can hike on the trails, go swimming in the creek, go play on the playground, have a picnic, and play soccer!
