Discover the North Shore

Welcome to the Superior Hiking Trail — a resource for everyone where individuals discover, learn, and connect with nature, themselves and each other.

The Trail Stewards

The Superior Hiking Trail Association (SHTA) protects the Trail to foster growth and connections — to nature, as individuals, and to each other. Our Association is honored to serve as stewards and promoters of this North Shore treasure.
