This was our first stop on our trip to Duluth and it was amazing! Gorgeous paths (though some parts are definitely on the wild side) and views along the water. We loved it and would definitely visit again!

We had a lovely picnic near the creek that runs through Chester Park and it was so peaceful and pretty even with a big group of kids playing nearby. It's a beautiful park with great views of Lake Superior. Fun for the whole family!

I just came back from a short hike up and down the creek and it amazes me that it's only a mile from where I live. In some other cities it would be a significant tourist attraction but we take places like this for granted...More

Every time I come to Duluth, I find new treasures to revisit. The hiking trails are a bit rough in this one, wear sturdy shoes but do make the climb to the upper part. The waterfalls are spectacular.

I always visit Chester Park on my trips to Duluth, in every season. The park offers quiet trails along Chester Creek that are up close and personal with nature. A fine place to spend an hour or 4 with solitude and exercise. You choose.

The trails along the river are easy to navigate. Many photo ops along the way. On the day we went the fall colors were gorgeous! There is a playground at the start of the trail along with restrooms.
