This is a great place to hike and take in the views! We hiked both on the trail above the river as well as on the frozen river. The views are great and it is right in town.

Spent a Sunday morning exploring the trails of Lester Park. Amazing views and gorgeous scenery. The trials were great for any age. They were not too busy, but felt very family friendly.

This is a low key yet nice golf corse for golfers at all levels. Especially enjoyed the views of Lake Superior! We plan on returning to play the Lake 9 next year!

I was there attending a wedding but there is plenty of things to do there! You can hike on the trails, go swimming in the creek, go play on the playground, have a picnic, and play soccer!
