We hiked this section in August from Lutsen down to Temperance River State Park. Our journey included Oberg Mountain and Carleton Peak over 2 days. Great views of Lake Superior from various points along the route. More elevation change along this section than most anywhere else along the SHT.

This trail system is amazing and beautiful, and they are making more trails all the time!

Went October 12th. Leaves were 60% done so there were a lot of colors in the trees and a very colorful wooded ground. Beautiful!
Beautiful view of Supirior a couple minute hike from the parking lot.
hike is 8-9.1 miles from Castle Danger Road to Gooseberry falls. Then 8-9.1 mile hike back over the same path to where you parked.
We hiked 16-18 miles round trip. We hauled it and competed it in 8 hours with a total of 12 minutes of breaks. Very sore legs the last 5 miles.
Lots of mud. Lots. Be prepared for that.
Well marked and easy to follow. Loved It!

Very easy going and the view of the water was calming

Kids (5, 8, 13) loved this trail! Not too hard for the little guys, but long enough to wear them out ;) Well-maintained, lots of benches for resting, trash cans along the trail.

Great easy trail. Saw fall colors around the lake and spent about 45 minutes doing the cross country ski trail.

Short hike with a great view. Rope climbing at the top if that is your thing.

Was a nice walk in the woods
