2020 Guided Hikes: Cancelled
All 2020 Guided Hikes have been cancelled due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Several factors have led us to our decision to cancel these hikes. First and foremost, we aim to protect the health of all trail users, event participants, volunteer hike leaders, and the trail community at-large. Recent spikes in coronavirus cases near the Trail and in our state are deeply concerning, and we do not believe it is safe to go forward with our hikes.
Additionally, our partners at the North Country Trail Association have discouraged group hike events for now. And land managers along the Trail, such as the US Forest Service and the City of Duluth, have wisely put restrictions in place for any group events, including outdoor gatherings on trails.
While there will not be any hikes put on by the SHTA this year, our 2020 Summit Challenge offers several destinations to explore new places on the SHT at your own leisure. We hope that you continue to get out on the Trail and use your good judgement to keep yourself and others safe.
