There are several vista points along this easy trail, with views of the lake and the mountains to the north and west. Definitely worth the short drive up the hill from Hwy 61. Everyone knows this trail is not in Duluth, even though one has...More

Been here twice and it's not too bad of a loop. If you just wanted to see all the point of interest on this hike by not doing the loop, you can go to your LEFT once the trail splits. The address is not in...More

If you come anytime April-late October, this is a great and easy hike. In the fall the views and tree colors are amongst the best anywhere.

We have hiked this trail twice now, and it is definitely worth the stop. There are many scenic overlooks and the hike itself is fairly intense. It seemed to go uphill the entire way, but it is worth it.

The Oberg Loop is a mostly easy hike that offers some beautiful views. The distance is short enough to tackle in just a few hours and the terrain is manageable enough for most people. Get there early to avoid the crowds and you won't be...More

That's a tricky time of year. The road is plowed to the parking lot for cross country skiing. The hiking trail up the mountain isn't groomed. Since much of the trail is rock, it can be very icy. Even in April a person can... More
