“The Absolute Best Hike!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

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.

“Beautiful views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 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 places to take some great pictures.

“great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

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.

Beautiful any time of year. A fairly easy hike where you may get to see moose, bear, deer and all sorts of birds. Enjoy!

“Moderate Difficulty - Great Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

There is some uphill involved in the beginnning, but once you are up at the top, the views are great and varied. You get to see both Lake Superior and inland woods and lakes from above.
