Tag: mix of woods and lakeside walking
Duluth, Minnesota. Amazing. Sit by a beautiful natural waterfall. Take a few steps and enter a restaurant. Eat your fill and then walk past a farmer’s market, some houses, and and art center. After just a few blocks you have arrived at the largest freshwater lake in the world. Oh, and did I mention the manicured Rose Garden that you will walk through before you actually get to the shore of Lake Superior?
In the winter, this park has the best walking trails in the area. They are cleared of snow soon after each snowfall. All year round this is a great place for a long walk. There is a nice mix of lakeside, woods, ballfields, gardens, and boardwalk through wetlands. They do not clear snow from the boardwalk, but why should they? The wetlands should be kept natural. It is 1.2 miles (2 km) from one end to the other. If you include all the paths, your total walk will be close to 4.5 miles. (7.25 km)
