Superior Hiking Trail

A short jaunt off the Superior Hiking Trail is the majestic Palisade Head

Considered one of the best hiking trails in the country, the Superior Hiking Trail is truly that... Superior.  Backpacker Magazine named the Superior Hiking Trail the trail with the "Best  Trail/Camp/Shelter conditions", the trail with the "Best Signage"  in the country and one of the most scenic trails in the nation (12/2000).  The trail begins in Lake County and extends along the great Lake Superior through seven state parks.  Enjoy breathtaking views of boreal forests, Sawtooth Mountains, babbling brooks, rushing waterfalls, and abundant wildlife.

The trail is readily accessible along its 200+ mile journey, with access points from Highway 61 every five to ten miles.  

If your group does not have two vehicles, there is a shuttle available.

Camping is available at designated sites and at the state parks.   Lodge to lodge hiking is also available.

In March 2009, a bill was introduced to reroute the North Country Trail to include the Kekekabic Trail, the Border Route Trail, and the Superior Hiking Trail.
