We are fortunate enough to have the Superior hiking trail right off our doorstep. It’s highly recommended! Please follow the rules on the signs for parking, that is a must.

We had a classic SHT hike, up and down the Cascade. The book describes the hike perfectly. Tough at times, for sure. Great views of course! The office in Two Harbors has all the information on this amazing trail system!

We backpacked this section with our 4, 5 and 13 year old kids in mid-June. It was beautiful. There were mosquitoes, thunderstorms, and mud bogs on the trail, and we still enjoyed it. Campsites were nice. The bear cable at Egge Lake was very helpful....More

We are in the process of hiking shorter lengths of the Trail with the ultimate goal of hiking the entirety of the trail, piece by piece. The trails are well marked and navigable. Some of the trail head parking areas can get crowded.
