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!

Lester Park is my favorite local park for the variety of trails. Starting in the park, you can climb the hill on the Amity East trail, or the Lester River trail; they connect via a (muddy) ski trail. Be sure to study the posted maps if you veer off trail. Also, if you're hiking, weekday mornings are least crowded in... More

Nothing spectacular, but pure relaxation. Nice small park close to Duluth. Places to hike and picnic and simply relax and regroup!

The city could give this course more love for maintenance. But the Lake 9 is rarely crowded and has spectacular views of the Lake. The Lake 9 is pretty challenging. The front 9 is more popular because it is less challenging.

I rode Lester this past weekend - excellent fall conditions. The trails were dry, fast, good flow, with occasional tight turns. There are a few bridges which add to the fun. For the most part, trails are well marked, though if you come out to the north side (near the Duluth Traverse trail), you have to travel down a gravel... More
