The Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail details over 296 miles of footpath on the North Shore of Lake Superior from Jay Cooke State Park near Duluth, MN. to the Canadian border. 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 with amazing cascading rivers and serene lakes and ponds. This landscape, once carved by ancient glaciers, is dominated by Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world. The Superior Hiking Trail is largely on the ridgeline overlooking Lake Superior, which provides great views and some of the most impressive scenery in the Midwest. The Guide can be used for both day hikes and backpacking. Day hikes from trailhead to trailhead are 5-11 miles in length.
