The Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail, 7th Edition, details over 300 miles of wilderness footpath on the North Shore of Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota. Much of the trail is on the rocky ridgeline overlooking Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world, with sweeping vistas of Lake Superior, cascading waterfalls, and remote lakes. Mile-by-mile descriptions lead the casual hiker or ardent backpacker through hardwood forests of birch and maple, and into boreal forests of spruce, pine and fir -- a region thriving with spectacular wildflowers and diverse wildlife.
The Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail provides information on trailhead parking lots, 93 backcountry campsites that require no fees, permits, or reservations, scenic overlooks, and linkages to eight state parks along the trail. Complete trail maps are included in each section. Whether you have two hours or two weeks, an afternoon or a weekend, this guide will enhance your hiking experience.
The Superior Hiking Trail Association (SHTA) is a non-profit organization that builds, mantains and manages the Superior Hiking Trail. SHTA is a member-based organization with over 3,500 members. Over 300 volunteers help maintain trail sections, campsites, and trailhead parking lots, and work on maintenance projects.
