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 disappointed.

This is an easy hike up Oberg Mountain. The upward slopes are not difficult to climb, but do have rock and tree root outcroppings. The views of the forest are stunning. There are dangerous overlooks and one must not stand on the edges of these overlooks. There are many different kinds of trees and plants to observe

Great hike and views, the perfect challenge up in the mountain. 2.25 miles around the loop. It had good places to stop with stops to view Lake Superior and forest.

Did this hike with my 12 and 10 year olds. I am healthy, but currently not very active. It definitely felt like a workout, but was very manageable. The views were outstanding and there are lots of them. Most of the trail has lots of roots and rocks and there is little flat. We stopped A LOT ( that's how... More

Every Fall we visit the Northshore to get away from the hustle & bustle in the cities. We enjoy hiking, sweeping views, and the peacefulness of being out in nature. There are so many amazing hiking trails along Superior, this is one of our favorites! The color during peak Fall, usually the last week in September or first week in... More

Oberg Mountain Loop offers a easy hike for both young and old. Other then some areas of mud and water (large puddles) the trail was easily traversed by our group. We had a 5,6,and 8 year old and all of them covered the loop without assistance. There are many observation points which offer great photo opportunities. We came across many... More
