Support the Trail

Help keep the Superior Hiking Trail one of the most desirable hiking and running destinations in the country. Here are a few of the ways your membership directly benefits the Trail:

  • We fund, coordinate, and complete essential trail infrastructure improvement projects.
  • Educate and empower trail users to care for the SHT and the North Shore.
  • Improve the resiliency and sustainability of the Trail for generations to come.

All SHTA members receive our newsletter, The Ridgeline, a few times a year, in addition to our Trail Mix e-news updates each month.

Please note: As of September 2020, the SHTA has discontinued our pocket map series, and maps are no longer included in new member welcome kits or provided to current members. Maps can be purchased through our online store

If you would like to support the SHT through your business, visit our Business Supporters page.
