The impressive Carlton Peak is visible from the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts and now this is your chance to climb to the top! After a short shuttle ride up the Sawbill Trail, we’ll outfit you with snowshoes and head out on a 3-mile round trip hike that is gradual at first, then steep. The extended steep sections make this a moderate/hard hike but it does lead to some of the best views in Tofte! We will outfit your boots with traction cleats for a non-slip hike when there are packed snow and icy conditions. The trail is part of the Superior Hiking Trail and within the Superior National Forest. On our journey, we will ascent nearly 700ft to Tofte Overlook and then Carlton Peak – two peaks with one hike! Don’t forget…sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, water bottle, camera!
Distance: 3 miles
