The Superior Hiking Trail would typically not make a leading ten checklist of things Minnesota is known for. If you asked the average person what going for a hike in Minnesota would be like, they would most likely assume of a stroll with a corn area or a savanna – usually flat as well as nothing extremely breathtaking. The truth is the Superior Hiking Path is one of the greatest natural destinations in Minnesota.
The Superior Hiking Route is situated in one of Minnesota’s most lovely locations – the North Shore of Lake Superior. No, the Sawtooth Hills are absolutely nothing like the Rocky Hills in terms of altitude, yet still provide several just as stunning sights.
The Superior Hiking Route presently consists of two major sections. The longest area of the route is over 200 miles long, stretching from Two Harbors, MN to the Canadian border.
It wasn’t until I was in my 30s that I uncovered the Superior Hiking Trail. The route takes you through dark as well as amazing cedar woodlands, substantial rock ignores, 200′ cliffs above lakes, many waterfalls and also countless scenic views of Lake Superior. While it is a various encounter compared to an above ground elevation walk, this route provides every bit as great of an encounter.
Don’t take my word for it.

With all the distinctions, just what regarding seclusion? While some sections of the Superior Hiking Path are fairly popular (Oberg Mountain Loop, Carleton Top, the Lutsen area), the majority of days I spent on the route as I area treked my means from Two Harbors to the Canadian boundary, I saw possibly another celebration hiking the path daily.
