Carlton Peak

mile 83.4
 
Massive blocks of gray anorthosite form Carlton Peak. This heady summit gives bird's-eye views of the maple forest you crossed to reach the peak. A nearby overlook has panoramas of Lake Superior, Tofte, and the Temperance River Valley, which makes this a great late season hike, too. From mile marker 83.4 in Tofte, drive north 2.3 miles to the parking area on the east/right.
