If you live on the East side of Duluth, this is your park. But few visitors seem to know about it. Hiking, biking and ski trails line both sides of a dramatic river gorge. CHEAT: You can drive the Seven Bridges Road instead of hiking...More

This is a nice little park and worth a stop. Take some time to relax and enjoy the hiking along the creeks. The kids will thank you for the stop.
