Britton Peak to Oberg Mountain

Linking people with nature by footpath along Lake Superior's North Shore.

Length: 5.7 SouthNorth

This section crosses the Sugarbush cross-country ski trail system several times. The section, one of the easier of the SHT, begins as an easy, rolling path through maple and birch forest, with a carpet of leaves underfoot in autumn. The topography becomes more dramatic in the central section and the maple and birch give way to spruce, balsam, and cedar around the beaver pond. From the pond the SHT ascends to Leveaux Mtn. loop and on to the parking area. Wet and seasonally wet ground is typical along this section.
