Length: 2 miles
Difficulty: moderate to difficult due to steepness
Two trails lead to the top of Mount Rose. The original Mount Rose has stone steps then switchbacks up the south side. The new Loop is not circular, but a trail bookended by sets of stairs and offers a more gradual ascent up the ridge line. Both provide excellent views of Lake Superior and the bay.
The Mount Rose Loop begins in the picnic area at the west end of the Heritage Center parking lot. The older Mount Rose Trail begins from the east and ends across from the historic depot’s stockade and main gate.
