Guided Hike AND Voyageur Brewing Pint Night
June 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm
As part of Voyageur Brewing’s June “Get Outdoors Month”, they are dedicating June 27th to the Superior Hiking Trail. This event will feature a Guided Hike, a specialty beer for the Superior Hiking Trail Association, and a presentation about the changes coming to the Cook County sections of the Trail. The proceeds from the specialty beer will go towards trail maintenance as well as $1 from every other pint sold the entire day. Grab a beer and join us for each of the events below! No registration is necessary for the guided hike or pint night – just join us for the fun day in Grand Marais!
2:00pm – “A Tale of Two Bridges and the Tales They Tell about Caring for the Superior Hiking Trail”, 2.2 miles
Join Superior Hiking Trail Association executive director Denny Caneff on a hike during which he will spin “A Tale of Two Bridges.” Building two bridges? Sounds simple enough. But therein lies the tale: how do you move 4 tons of bridge beams by hand? How do you build a bridge — again, by hand — over a 30-foot deep gorge? And learn how simply getting a hiking trail across a stream is a complex endeavor. This is an easy two-mile hike, out and back. Meet at the SHT spur trail at the Kadunce River Wayside. Be sure to stick around for the event at Voyageur Brewing Company!
Directions to Kadunce River Wayside: On Hwy. 61 milepost 119, just past the Outpost Motel.
5:00-9:00pm – SHTA staff will be at the brewery to answer questions and chat. They will have maps, guide books, and lists of Voyageur Brewing beer and hike pairings.
6:00pm – Presentation and conversation in the back brewery about the trail maintenance coming to Cook County.
