Sawtooth Mountains

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

The Sawtooth Mountain Range stretches from the west side of Tofte to the east side of Grand Marais. It is made up of a number peaks, with the highest one reaching 900 feet over Lake Superior. While these peaks don’t rival other mountain ranges in height, the Sawtooth Mountain Range has a noteworthy silhouette. Looking at it from a distance, the peaks resemble the teeth of a saw with their uniform size, height and angles (hence the name Sawtooth Mountains).

The range was created by a combination of volcanic activity and erosion over the past billion years. Peaks include Carlton Peak, Leveaux Mountain, Oberg Mountain, Moose Mountain, Eagle Mountain, Murphy Mountain and Sawtooth Bluff.

Mt. Oberg -Close to Lake Superior Cabin Rentals

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

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.
