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.

I love the colors more so than anywhere in the world. Yellows reds oranges. I hike it every year in September. I love the switch backs. It's like a real mountain in Minnesota.

This is such a scenic area, especially in the winter. There are a few ski trails along the way that are worth stopping at. Climb Oberb Mountain if you have time, the view from the top is breathtaking.

This is a fairly easy hike, there are several stop points to view the scenery around Lutsen, from the Lake Superior views to the forest... Great way to spend an hour of your day!

If you are going to do only one hike along the North Shore, this is the ONE!!! What a great way to get a little exercise and take in the amazing views. The fall colors were spectacular in 2012.

This is a moderate trail. Well worth the time and effort to get to the top. We were there in September and it was very busy. Stop in the visitors center in Tofte Mn. and get a map. Very scenic views especially during the fall color season. Picnic area if you are interested. We didn't see much wildlife. Lots of... More

This takes a bit to walk but definitely worth it - I would allow a couple hours at least especially if you are taking pictures. There are a number of overlooks as you hike around the mountain.
