Happy Hikers invites you on the

Oberg Mountain Trail

We are in for a big treat on the Wednesday hike on Sept. 27. We'll be hiking one of our favorites...Oberg Mountain. The Oberg Trail, 2.2 miles, leads to top of Oberg Mountain​. The trail ​begin​s​ with moderately climbing switchbacks leading to an easy, circular loop at top of ​the​ mountain. Oberg rises 1,000 feet above Lake Superior​ and has ​9 scenic overlooks. ​It's e​specially beautiful in fall. ​There are ​rock cliffs & ledges. ​Meet at the YMCA, tennis court side, on Wed., Sept. 27 at 9:30 am. We'll carpool to the trailhead. (If you live at the west end, please meet us at the trailhead, located on the Onion River Rd. #336, off of Hwy. 61. Go 2 miles up the Onion River Rd.,​ and park in the large lot.) Please bring a sack lunch, as we'll be eating it up there on the top, enjoying the overlook of Lake Superior. ​Dogs are welcome, on a leash. Everyone is welcome. Invite your friends and spread the word... The more, the merrier! If it's raining, the hike will be cancelled. Listen for the announcement on WTIP by 8:30 on Wed. If in doubt, call Nancy: #512-567-0653. Just one more hike after this: Oct. 4 Lutsen Gondola Ride & Superior Hiking Trail.​
