Ways To Give Back


The Superior Hiking Trail Association protects, renews, and enhances the SHT to provide a world-class experience in the outdoors for all. We rely on the generosity of donors like you to help us preserve the Trail both today and for future generations. 

Here are a few of the ways your contribution directly benefits the trail:

  • Fund essential trail improvement projects
  • Educate and empower trail users to care for the SHT
  • Improve the resiliency and sustainability of the trail
