Each year, the Trail gives us truly Superior gifts.
Kids take their first overnight backpacking trips with their parents, fall in love with the woods, and make life-long memories.
Trail runners sign up for their first marathons, test their bodies and minds in every way possible and succeed.
Thru-hikers start at the southern terminus with a storm of butterflies in their stomachs and arrive at the northern terminus with confidence as strong as the roots of an old-growth pine.
For our year-end fundraiser, we share a month-long storytelling series celebrating gifts people received from the Trail this year. Subscribe to our email list to follow along, or read their stories by clicking the links below:
To ensure everyone can receive these gifts from the Trail, the Superior Hiking Trail Association relies on supporters like you to protect, maintain, and manage the Trail. Please give a Superior gift today.
