from the Superior Hiking Trail Association

The Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail details over 277 miles of footpath on the North Shore of Lake Superior from Jay Cooke State Park near Duluth, MN. to the Canadian border.

The new (sixth) version has the newest sections from Fox Farm Rd to Cty 301. This is about 28 miles. Also the guide has been altered to have the Jay Cooke and Duluth Sections first, as they should be. The trail begins at Jay Cooke at the visitor center and follows park trails for 6 miles until the Grand Portage trailhead. The gap between Martin Rd in Duluth and Fox Farm East trailhead is about 25 trail miles.

The Guide is layed out section-by-section with each section providing trailhead parking directions, campsite and water source info, and a mile-by-mile description of the trail and scenic features. Anyone who has used the SHTA guides recognizes that theirs is an excellent and easy-to-use format.

I believe I am the first person on my block to have the new guidebook. It is similar to the old one except it has the new sections in it an the Duluth area first in the book. Very informative
