Superior Hiking Trail: The Seven Summits Challenge

August 17, 2017

Hiking The Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) is a popular activity on the North Shore and for good reasons: the beautiful views, great exercise, and of course the Seven Summits Challenge. On a trail that stretches more than 330 miles from Duluth to the Canadian border, the seven summits bring a new and unique challenge to hikers. Can you reach them all?

Visit Ely’s Peak (1) to see beautiful views of the St. Louis River Valley. Hike through a beautiful pine forest to Mount Trudee (2) in Tettegouche State Park. Climb Carton Peak (3) for breathtaking views of Lake Superior.

With fall right around the corner, Oberg Mountain (4) is a wonderful place to view the maple leaves as they change color. While you’re there, visit Moose Mountain (5), which is in the same trail section and rises more than 1,000 feet above the level of Lake Superior. Lookout Mountain (6) provides great views over Cascade River and see Grand Marais from a different perspective on top of Pincushion Mountain (7).

Whether you are hiking to see a variation of wildlife, for exercise, for a fun family activity or to just get outdoors, the Superior Hiking Trail is always a great option and right out of Bluefin Bay’s back door! Grab your hiking boots and we’ll see you on the trail!
