There had been some damage to walkway from storms, but that is to be expected from something so close to Lake Superior. Easy access and wonderful views all along the lake. If you are in Duluth you have to take advantage of this wonderful attraction.

Due to some time constraints we could only do part of the 'Lakewalk' in Duluth. However, we enjoyed the time walking there. We were lucky to have no rain while walking on a very rainy day!!
