Superior Hiking Trail
Spanning 300+ miles from Jay Cooke State Park to the Canadian border, the Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) is a national treasure. It recently joined the North Country Trail system’s 4,800-mile network that spans eight states.
The Superior Hiking Trail has been wowing hikers—and volunteers who maintain it—since 1987. It travels through birch, aspen, pine, fir, and cedar forests. Hikers enjoy scenic views from ridges, babbling brooks, marshland, and more.
In Lake County alone, you’ll find 100+ miles of the SHT and more than a dozen sections of trail. It runs through the state parks and, in between, features rustic backpacking campsites. Find trailheads, maps, and more at shta.org.
