Carlton Peak

mile 83.4

 

 
Massive blocks of gray anorthosite form Carlton Peak. This heady summit gives bird's-eye views of the maple forest you crossed to reach the peak. Carlton Peak is 924 feet high with the trail elevation of about 550 feet. A nearby overlook has panoramas of Lake Superior, Tofte, and the Temperance River Valley, which makes this a great late season hike, too. Length: 3-3.4 miles depending if you take the spur trails Difficulty: moderate due to steepness
