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.

Superior Hiking Trail with kids 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.
