For a pawmazing getaway in the middle of Duluth, leash up your pup and check out Congdon Park. Stretching along Tischer Creek, this large park houses the furbulous Congdon Creek Park Trail, a path your dog is gonna go mutts for!
This mile and a half trail is completely paved and follows alongside Tischer Creek as it winds it's way through the park. To enter the trail, park along 32nd Avenue East and Superior Street where parking is easy to find.
As you and your pup leisurely stroll along the trail, you will be treated to not only the lovely creek, but also a forested area, a natural gorge, waterfalls, and even unique volcanic rock formations. There's also ancient, but well-maintained bridges, stairs, and stepping stones that are from the original development of the park in the early 1900's. Your pooch will love the abundance of trees and animal scents too!
There are plenty of shaded areas due to all the mature trees, so you and your doggo can find a place to sit and have lunch, or just a rest. There are picnic tables by the trailhead and the waterfalls. You will likely see some pawesome wildlife, but the park department asks that you do not feed or approach them. You should also be sure that your fur buddy does not irritate the other park visitors or the local wildlife, so keep that leash is firmly fastened. Also bring your own clean-up bags and water. While there are restrooms in the park, there are none on the path, so you need to fill your water bottles before you start your hike.
