Oberg Mountain Hiking Loop

mile 86.1
Length: 2.25 miles
Difficulty: moderate with steep climbs and open rock cliffs
 
While this is the trail to hike during autumn’s early season of maple colors, it is fantastic spring and summer, too. This trail begins with a spur, which connects to a loop around Oberg Mountain's upper edge. Overlooks include views of adjacent LeVeaux Mountain, Lake Superior, the maple hillsides, and Oberg Lake. Enter the maple woods and hike under the canopy of birch and maple before you begin the 2-mile loop. Plan on a busy trail filled with happy hikers – the views will do that.
