Oberg Mountain Loop – Minnesota

The Oberg Mountain Loop is a hike that begins at a parking lot on Onion Rd. off the scenic Hwy. 61 near Tofte, MN. There is a good size parking area, restroom and great signage to help you locate this trail head.

This hike is just under 3 miles and offers spectacular views of every side of the mountain. As you begin, it is clearly marked that there are cliff edges along the way and to keep an eye on children.

This, in my opinion, is a very doable hike for families/individuals. Whether it’s hiked slow or fast, it is a great average hike and elevation gain is at a slow pace and should not offer much, if any, difficulties. The trail is well marked and there are many overlooks  where a nice rest can be taken if needed.

I would suggest making this trip in the fall of the year since the colors would be a sight to see. Although, if this is not possible, we hiked this loop in July and it was still absolutely amazing. Bring water, bug spray, and a snack and you should be good to go for a quick hike and a view you will never forget.
