Hiking Around Lutsen, Minnesota

On our recent getaway, we took two hikes while we were staying at the Lutsen Resort.

The first one, called the Oberg Loop, is said to be “easy” according to the brochure, but I think it should be listed under “intermediate.” Most of the trail is easy but there are areas where you have to walk on uneven rock to get to the other side of the trail. This was a little troublesome for me as the first time we came across one such area we didn’t even know we needed to walk across the rocks to get to the other side. We wound up looking at the view and taking another path.

There is a rest area at the parking lot.

Once you reach the “top” of the trail, the views of Lake Superior are quite breathtaking!

Here is one area where one could not see the other side of the trail without climbing over the rocks to the other side. Fortunately my husband was willing to do that as I would have turned around as parts of it were a bit steep.

And here’s a picnic table … a nice spot to enjoy the views.

It was a good hike on a beautiful late summer Minnesota day. And the views are worth the time.
