If you walk all 4 sections it is 7.2 miles. Fantastic trails and switch backs and great leg workout of constant up and downs. Went walking but the best mountain biking trail I have seen. Take plenty of deep woods Mosquito repellent though - we didn't and paying for it the next day.

Just awesome trails and ACTUAL hiking as opposed to walking in the woods. The camping is also great with sites spread far apart and a solid hike in.

Don't waste your time, trails pretty much suck. Pretty much no maintenance. Lots of washed away trail on the more interesting paths and those same paths are severely overgrown. I only gave this crap trail system a three because of the "big spring", though it's not big, it's beauty and the tranquil environment it offers IS its only saving grace.

Always quiet, if your not from the area its definitely worth the stop, a chance to see southern Minnesota at its finest.

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.

Fantastic views of Lake Superior, the rock formations, as well as the town once you reach the top. It's a short trail however you'll be impressed with the results.

Decent trail but lots of biting flies which bite really hard. That was in July.
