Just did a 4 day hike on the northern most 53 miles of the SHT. We started at the north end, at the Otter Lake trail head and hiked our way south. The spring of 2014 has been VERY wet and the Swamp River lived up to its name. It was really wet and soggy the first day! Followed moose... More

Hiked a couple of sections of the trail. I was very impressed by how well marked the route is although the area around Elys Peak could do with refreshing. Absolutely beautiful and I felt far removed from the hussle and bustle of city life.

I've been on a few different legs of the trail and have really enjoyed getting away from the city. Some spots are pretty easy, but some can be very challenging. Bring a map and a GPS for peace of mind. We came across an area last week that branched off on four different paths. The first two we took were... More

My son and I backpacked a portion of the trail in 2011 from just north of Two Harbors to Gooseberry State Park. This trail is great. It is well maintained and easy to follow It has plenty of varying terrian to keep you on your toes. The camp sights are well organized and clean. Many are set up so that... More

Hiked a portion around Gooseberry River and then did the 5 mile day hike around Split Rock River. Although it was misting most of the hike, the canopy kept me from getting too wet. The trail is very well marked and includes some great trail spurs, which are worth the extra steps. Awesome views of the river falls, the valley,... More

Park at the wayside off Hwy 61 just south of Split Rock river (47.182137,-91.409115). Then take the "spur trail" (you will actually just be walking next to the highway) staying on the West shoulder of Hwy 61. Don't go shooting out of the parking lot up the hill unless you want a really cool but 5-mile long hike around the... More

We hiked several sections of the trail on different days. including Split Rock, Gooseberry Falls, Oberg Mountain, and Devils Track. All were excellent. I had no idea that hiking trails with views like this existed in the midwest. There are beautiful views everywhere and too many cascades and falls to count. Very quiet with few other hikers during midweek. Trails... More

A friend and I backpacked an out-and-back from July 24-27th, starting just outside of Grand Marais at the Pincushion Mtn. parking lot, hiking out and stopping just shy of the lake walk before turning back. Unfortunately the weather was miserable (cold and rainy) the whole time. Except for the soupy conditions and a few recently downed trees, the trail was... More

Loved the split-rock and other trails on the superior hiking trail. They were challenging with beautiful views and maintained, yet not too populated. Thank you to the volunteers who maintain the trail.

From just enjoying the view to hiking miles of trails with time out to visit historic places and interesting towns along the shore... great family vacation.
