From the trailhead on the east side of the Gunflint Trail, the elevation rises 370 feet to the top of Blueberry Hill. The Northern Light Lake Overlook Trail is difficult and steep, but short at approximately 1 mile round trip. The summit is an outcropping of volcanic rock, and there are excellent views of Northern Light Lake and the surrounding Superior National Forest. As the name for the hill implies, there are reportedly blueberries when in season.
