Thru-Hike the Superior Hiking Trail

Planning, Resupplying, Safety, Bears, Bugs, and More

By Annie Nelson

The Superior Hiking Trail offers 310 miles of rugged terrain with sweeping views of Lake Superior, cascading waterfalls, secluded lakes, endless boreal forests and close encounters with wildlife. While you can enjoy portions of the trail for a day or a weekend, the challenge of accomplishing a long-distance thru-hike appeals to many. Thru-Hike the Superior Hiking Trail provides a thorough and easy to understand overview of how to plan a trip on the SHT. Offering expert advice on arranging resupply, selecting gear, getting transportation to and from the trail, navigation, safety, and local amenities along the way, the guide delivers solid information for thru-hikers that is used for day hikers and overnight backpackers, too.

“This guide provides a thorough and easy to understand overview of how to plan a trip on the SHT from someone who did it the right way. It’s written for thru-hikers, but the information is useful for day hikers and overnight backpackers too.” — Jaron Cramer, development and communications director of the Superior Hiking Trail Association
