Before there were guidebooks, before there were travel aps, before there were GPS watches, there were real live people called guides. Experts at the terrain, and at making travelers comfortable. And at discretion.
For our money, when we have enough of it on hand, traveling with a expert guide is still one of the best ways to go. This space is open to anyone who has been on a guided trip, dreamed of going on one, or is a guide.

Featured in "1,000 Places to See in U.S. and Canada Before You Die." The rugged natural beauty of Lake Superior and the civilized touches of the Lodges, Inns and Bed and Breakfasts of Minnesota's North Shore bring you one of North America's finest hiking experiences, Lodge to Lodge Hiking along one of the continent's finest trails, the Superior Hiking Trail.
The Superior Hiking Trail is truly one of the continent's finest hiking trails. You find unexpected remoteness and some of the most dramatic scenery you can ever imagine. The Trail winds for 200 miles, high above Lake Superior from Two Harbors to the Canadian border along the ridgeline of the ancient Sawtooth Mountain Range. You can stand atop a high bluff and gaze across 50 miles of Lake Superior. Or you can rest beside rivers cascading though rocky gorges to the lake hundreds of feet below.
Hike through a northern forest of maple, aspen, birch, balsam, ancient cedar and towering pine. Wildlife abounds. You may find signs of deer, moose, wolf and beaver along with a great variety of birds along the trail. The Superior Hiking Trail was built as a cooperative venture between The Superior Hiking Trail Association (SHTA), the State of Minnesota's DNR, the USFS, Cook and Lake Counties and many private land owners. The ongoing maintenance and remaining construction of the trail is the primary responsibility of membership support to the SHTA.
