First of all, we used the Superior Hiking Shuttle to get to our starting destination. They are great. On time, easy to coordinate your hike. Last year they even came and picked us up when the weather was too dangerous to keep hiking. The hiking trail is beautiful, and the camp sites are so nice, remote, and even have bear... More

On a chilly, clear morning in February, my husband and I were picked up by Bob with the Superior Hiking Shuttle Service at the parking lot at Gooseberry Falls. He dropped us off at the Castle Danger trail head and we hiked 9.6 miles back to our car at Goosberry Falls. Temp was -6 when we started, but it warned... More

We started at the Tettegouche State Park and went to the falls. It was a perfect 2 hour hike on a cold day; just enough of a challenge for us without ice cleats. The visitor center was brand new and really nice to warm up by the fire. Lower trail out to Lake Superior was easy and offered great views... More

The Oberg loop offers stunning views of both Superior National Forest and Lake Superior. It's not too long, but be prepared to meet quite a few other hikers.

This is a fantastic trail because it is so well marked. And it takes the hiker through gorgeous areas of woods, rivers, waterfalls and views of Lake Superior!!!!

This past visit to the North Shore we spent primarily on the SHT & we loved it! The Cascade loop is a very pretty hike & took about 4.5 hrs. The Bear & Bean lake hike was very pretty as well & gave amazing views of the interior lakes as well as Lake Superior. Our last hike was out to... More

We started at the Tettehoche State Park and took the 2 mile hike to the twin falls. The falls themselves are not high so therefore not spectacular but the hike was short enough for the kids. The park lodge has a great picnic area so take a picnic lunch because there are no food options there. If you go a... More

We've gone on a number of day trips and overnight trips on different segments of this trail -- near and through Duluth, around Castle Danger and Gooseberry, north of Finland through George Crosby Manitou State Park and the Cascade River, up Oberg Mountain, and north of Grand Marais. The trail has varied scenery throughout, is well marked, the campsites are... More

Good way to get out and see the area and exercise as well. Some of the walk can be tiring, especially with small children needing help.

40 miles of fabulous views of lake superior, waterfalls, beaver ponds, lakes and inland forest on the north shore of lake superior in Minnesota. This hike varies in degree of difficulty from easy and flat on the bottoms with wet and muddy conditions, as a result of the 100 mile endurance run on the Friday after labor day, to challenging,...
