Well marked trails

Hubby hike a 15 mile section and loved it. Said the trail was well marked and had a nice variety. He did county road 301 to Gooseberry.

Being from Wisconsin, I arrogantly thought I knew all about Northern Minnesota. I expected it to be flat with cliffs along the lake and rolling hills. Ha! Who knew Minnesota has mountains? And as a Colorado native, I don't use the term "mountain" frivolously. We put in at Crosby Manitou State Park and backpacked to Silver Bay over 5 days.... More

Lots to see - an amazing beautiful place to see and hike. The trails are great in the summer - but awesome in the fall - all the leaves changing colors. Outdoor beauty at its best!!!

The Superior Hiking Trail offers trails to a wide range of hiker abilities. One can plan a gentle hike with young kids or a more arduous trek for even the most able backpacker. They even offer rustic campsites for those that wish to overnight.

This was our first time hiking the SHT. We parked in Crosby-Manitou State Park and were picked up there by the Superior Shuttle. They dropped us off at Silver Bay and that's where we started our 36 mile/5 day hike back to Crosby-Manitou. We camped each night on the trail and carried our supplies in backpacks. The Shuttle people were... More

We have been hiking this trail for many years....we keep coming back because of its beauty and challenges. There are sections of the trail that are for the Hardy family...(Lots of hills and valleys) and then there are sections that are pretty flat. When it rains, the bugs can REALLY be bad especially in the low lands. Since we only... More

We just got a taste of this trail. The resort service dropped us off so we would end at our car. We hiked to Cascade River State Park. We enjoyed the hike, but the waterfalls were disappointing. We want to do the lodge to lodge hiking next year to do the whole thing.

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
