Lakewalk - Fitgers to the Rose Garden & Beyond

Duluth, Minnesota

If you've made a detour off the lakewalk to wander throughin the Fitgers complex or catch a bite to eat at Sir Benedicts, you'll have your choice of two routes as you continue north east on the lakewalk. From the Fitgers complex to Leif Erickson Park, there is both an upper and lower lakewalk. The lower path goes by the Viking ship and with Lake overlooks. The upper walk goes through the famous Rose Garden.

Even if you haven't detoured to explore Fitgers, you can tour the Rose Gardens on your walk. There is a staircase from the lower lakewalk just past the Viking Ship that leads to the Rose Garden and the upper lakewalk. Tour the garden and then return to the Lakewalk to continue.

About a mile and half down the trail, the Lakewalk ends as it intersects with the sidewalk along London Road.

the end of the lakewalk

Technically the Lakewalk continues on the other side of London Road but at this point it no longer borders Lake Superior. The walking, biking trail runs for another mile or two until it terminates at Lester Park.

About a mile further down London Road is Glensheen Mansion, a historic home and estate that is now owned and maintained in its turn of the century opulence by the University of Minnesota. Tours and events are held at the Mansion throughout the year. Their vision is to be the best Historic House Museum in the upper Midwest via their dedication to education, preservation, innovation and community and University engagement.
