This One Hike In Minnesota Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

The crown jewel of Minnesota might just be a 310 mile long patch of dirt. A trail, in fact, known as the Superior Hiking Trail (SHT). It’s not as well known as the Appalachian Trail or Pacific Crest Trail, but it’s arguably the most beautiful of the long trails in the US. In fact, it’s been named one of the 5 Best Hikes in America (Readers Digest), the trail with the best Trail/Camp/Shelter conditions, the best signage, and one of the most scenic in the country (Backpacker Magazine).

The trail stretches along the North Shore, and goes through 7 of Minnesota’s most beautiful state parks. An experience along the SHT is always unique and always unforgettable.

Even if you’ve seen all the sights along the way – nothing compares to a backpacking experience on the Superior Hiking Trail. It’s truly something the likes of which you can only find in Minnesota, and it’s worth every last step.
