Ascent Trip ReportDrove up from Duluth early Friday morning and turned off onto CR 4 / Caribou Trail around Lutsen. Followed the winding road all the way to The Grade and turned right (there's a sign). Drove down The Grade for several miles to a turnoff into a parking lot for the trail head. Did not see any cars after turning off HW 61 but found 5 other cars in the parking lot when we arrived. After spraying ourselves with OFF (we'd read about the mosquitos) we took off into the woods. It was a pretty hike. Actually saw quite a few other hikers that day, which surprised me due to its remoteness (or at least it seemed remote to me). There was a great view as you get near the summit. The summit itself does not offer any type of view as it is surrounded by trees. We took standard picture at the top and trekked back down. It took us 3 hrs 15 mins to do the round trip, and that included stopping to take pictures along the way. HP #10.
