Nestled within the city of Duluth, Minnesota, is a clean Lakewalk awaiting you and your pooch. This Lakewalk is over 7 miles long, and offers walkers an opportunity to stroll alongside the shoreline of Lake Superior, while coming across different beaches and picnic areas throughout the walk. One of these beaches in particular is the 16th Avenue East Beach, where you and Fido are welcome. At this beach, also known as Lakewalk East Beach, your pooch is free to splash in the water, walk on leash and explore the Lakewalk Trail.
At the 16th Avenue Beach, there are picnic tables for guests to use. In addition, there are also trash receptacles for any dog waste. As the Lakewalk in Duluth is a popular tourist and dog walking attraction, all entrances to the Lakewalk contain dispensaries with dog bags that you are free to use while you take your walk. Washrooms can also be found right at the beach, though there are no showers available. From the beach, you have direct access to the Lakewalk as they are only about 50 yards apart. The main area of the Lakewalk is the section running from 27th Avenue East to the Bayfront Festival Park right in downtown Duluth, and is approximately 4 miles long. The Lakewalk is always open, but generally beaches in Duluth open at sunrise and close at sunset. There is no fee for the beach or the Lakewalk, making it accessible to all visitors!
