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.

Plan Your Adventure

Preparing for your trip

The SHT is a rugged footpath that requires appropriate planning and gear. Whether embarking on a leisurely day hike or an extensive thru-hike, we have what you need to be prepared.

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.
