“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

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.

“Enjoyable and easy hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

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 parking at the base of the trail and it is well-marked.

“Good hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

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.

“Best scenic hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Great, even in the winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

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.
