We did this hike in June, and only the Oberg Mountain section, but the views were absolutely beautiful. The hike has more elevation than most in the area, but we took our time as there are such great views as you round each bend. Very stunning, and not too strenuous. Definitely worth the drive from Duluth.

For MN hiking at lower elevations this is moderate difficulty but if you are used to high elevation hiking it is easy.

Very nice climb and views. I've hiked it in the summer and snowshoed in winter. Very accessible and the switchbacks make it a pretty easy climb.

This is a must at leaf turning time! Even my overweight wife feels this is worth the effort. If you haven't seen miles & miles of beautiful trees forming a patchwork of colors, you have to see this to believe it. There are switchbacks, but can take rests. View of Lake Superior is also amazing.
