This is one of the easier mountain hikes in the area (compared to Carlton Peak and Eagle Mountain). Great views as you hike all around the top of the mountain. We went after peak colors but the forest was still very colorful. Going late in the fall definitely has it's advantages as we had the mountain all to ourselves. There's... More

Come early in the day to ensure you can get a parking spot. This is a popular hike; great views, easy hike, smooth trail. Vistas of forest, small Oberg lake and Lake Superior abound. I recommend this as great place to take photos, especially when fall colors are at peak. Also an excellent place to bring a lunch (keep it... More

So...I come from a family of avid hikers and backpackers but not me. In September during Fall peak colors, I decided to give it a try. We took our time and began the Oberg Loop around 9am. It wasn't as difficult as I thought and the views were great. As we were making our way down to the parking lot,... More

The views from Oberg Mountain on a sunny late September morning were stunning! We got many pictures. The weather was beautiful all weekend, which of course meant there were many visitors - the only downside of the visit. Parking at the trailhead was crazy, but still the trip was well worth it. We have many beautiful pictures from this trip.

Easy hike for fabulous views. The parking lot is well marked and has a restroom available. The beginning of the hike is a little rocky and steep--however, sandals or walking shoes are fine for this trek. The loop at the top of the mountain has several overlooks, each unique and beautiful. There's even a picnic table for a box lunch!... More

This hike is just as beautiful as Mt Eagle, but much less energy is required to make the hike. The distance to the top and first view of Lake Superior is far shorter and less steep, but the view is picture perfect.

A very pleasant - and fairly easy little trek - for a magnificent view of Lake Superior and Oberg Lake; very doable for even the most novice hikers. As a bonus - the drive up the North Shore makes the trip spectacular!!

THis hike is fairly short and well worth the opportunity to see a lot of territory from a distance up the hills. One of the best of the Superior Hiking Trail.

The only hard parts of this hike are the beginning and the end when you are climbing to and coming down from from the main loop. The actual loop is a fairly flat trail taking you all the way around the mountain. You will be rewarded with great views, especially in the fall during peak color. There is plenty of... More

Be prepared to CLIMB and WALK! A nice loop with scenic overlooks. Steep and rocky in places but our kids (8 and 10) did great.
