The nights this past week on the North Shore of Minnesota have been beautiful.  The sunny blue skies almost call your name to get outside and do something fun.  I have not been to Mt. Oberg in Lutsen so far this year so I decided it was the perfect time to go!  The hike was so wonderful with budding flowers at every turn.  My favorite in the spring are the Trillium flowers.   The views from the overlooks were amazing with a green trees and the bright blue shoreline of Lake Superior (finally)!  The trail is about 2.25 miles in length and takes about 45 minutes at a moderate speed.  It is a designated Superior Hiking Trail hike.  There are a few places to rest on wooden benches.  It is also a great spot to hike (or snowshoe) year round!  The location is easy to get to for many of our Lake Superior cabin rentals in the Lutsen and Tofte area or if you are on your way to one of our Grand Marais vacation homes – right off Highway 61 and the Onion River Road in Lutsen.
