the Visit Neighboring States Series
Superior Hiking Trail is over 310 miles of foot paths along the rocky ridgeline of Lake Superior. It was named one of the top ten best hiking trails in the world by Backpacker Magazine.
The continuous trail is has lots of access points and runs through state parks along Highway 61. This makes it easy to hike smaller portions with your children.
We did two-hour hikes with our seven year-olds in Gooseberry and Tettegouche state parks. The trails are well maintained and along neat geological features like water falls and rivers. Daddy carried a day pack for us with water, snacks and other necessities like wipes and tissue.
My husband also does full day hikes alone, hiking between 10-15 miles. The great thing about the Superior Hiking Trail is that he had cell phone reception for almost all of the hikes.
