We chose this hike for our last day up north. It was rated moderate, but was a bit easier than I anticipated. Our 6 and 7 year olds had no problem with the trail. The views are pretty and there are opportunities to see (snack on?) some wild raspberries along the trail. NOTE: THIS TRAIL IS NOT IN DULUTH. Not... More

We love this hike for its views. Both inland and outwards towards lake superior. This is a great place to watch the sunset and hear the frogs come out to sing. Once you reach the loop its a very level hike. Its a must do hike for us every time we visit.

This is a great introduction to the NorthShore of Lake Superior an the Superior Hikeing Trail. Especially great views of color in the fall. Not to be missed

I went around June of last year- we found the trail just driving on the highway! The loop was beautiful and a good hike that didn't tire me out. The views were gorgeous, it took about 2 and a half hrs to hike because we stopped for a picnic and enjoyed the views. Would highly recommend! Great lake views

This is a reasonably easy hike and the reward is fabulous views of Lake Superior and Oberg Lake. We like to visit in late Sept. early Oct. - after the peak of the color season, because the crowds are down and the hillsides are still colorful. With fewer people, we have had numerous sightings of deer and smaller critters.

This is one of my favorite snowshoe and cross-country ski destinations. I've hiked it in the summer and fall as well, but there's something magical about it in the wintertime, especially during a snowfall. A nice mix of gentle and more strenuous paths provide something for every level of skier.

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.
