This is our escape from the city! We have completed any sections of this trail and have enjoyed them all! We have enjoyed many weekend without running into others and have also ran into some wonderful people! It's always great to get a trail map or check online as some trails are easy and some are a bit more tricky!... More

We hiked at the most perfect time of year. Cool, sunny and dry. The colors were spectacular. The leaves at peak and the water clear blue.

Great trail that winds around, has a number of elevation changes, a few forks, and some beautiful overlooks. I only wish I had more time to hike it!

We greatly enjoyed our sampling of the Superior Hiking Trail, the 5 mile Split Rock Loop. Trail is well marked and reasonably maintained but quite muddy at this time of year. If you have hiking poles you definitely want to use them. Lots of lake and river views and glorious fall colors. There is easy access to this loop from... More

We stayed in Two Harbors as a mid-way point to our camp ground in Grand Marais. Very nice hotel. We'd stay again.

We hiked just a small portion of the SHT between Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock. This is a treasure to have in Minnesota. There are many options to lengths of trails. It was fun to see what surprise might be around the corner.

Great trail. I hiked the Split Rock River Loop with some friends. It was about 5 miles of varied terrain along the river, including a great panoramic overview of Lake Superior. Very cool one-person-at-a-time bridge crosses the river. We had some difficulty navigating back to the parking area and ended up following the road, but otherwise the trail was extremely... More

Visited here in July - went on a five mile hike with friends. Views are spectacular...love the trails - they are not paved (which makes it a better hike in my opinion)! Can't go wrong here regardless of what trail you take (I believe there are 310 miles of trails).
