Superior Hiking Trail

     The Gunflint Trail has some awesome places to hike but when I’m in Grand Marais or along the shore then I always take time to hike on the Superior Hiking Trail.  Even though the snow has covered many of the hiking trails you can still enjoy them with snowshoes on.  Many of the spur trails to the Superior Hiking Trail follow rivers up into the woods and offer spectacular scenery.    Here is another excerpt from the Cook County News-Herald.

20 Years Ago  December 8, 1986

     A hiking trail stretching from Duluth to Hovland has been proposed by a group that calls itself the Superior Hiking Trail Association.

     The 186-mile trail will follow the ridgeline of Lake Superior, offering spectacular views of the lake from numerous rock outcroppings while moments later dropping down through lush green wilderness.
