Off the portage between Lake Disappointment and Lake Asub lies a winding trail up to the 'summit' of Mount Disappointment. A rocky wilderness trail climbing up to some great views of Lake Disappointment - spruce grouse and other wildlife may be seen along it...

Very lightly used - to the point of being difficult to follow at times. Mostly hardwood cover. Steady up and steady back down. One of the few places inland from Lake Superior where you can find thimble berries. Actual name is Disappointment Mountain.
