Hiking really is ‘superior’ in our area. Considered one of the finest trails in the United States, the 310-mile Superior Hiking Trail passes through the Lutsen-Tofte area and provides many opportunities to explore trail sections within close proximity of Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts. We offer guided hiking excursions year-round with a variety of distances and degrees of difficulty. Many of our resort guided hikes take advantage of the epic hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail or the spur trails that lead to incredible overlooks, rushing waterfalls and dense forest areas.
Hiking is a favorite activity of our guests and the Bluefin Bay Activities Director is always busy adding new hikes and adventures for all skill levels to the weekly activities line-up. Visit our Activities & Events calendar to browse through the different guided hiking trips we offer. These trips are included as part of your stay and a great way to experience our area trails with an experienced guide. We are passionate about sharing the incredible views and the incredible joy that come with time spent on the trails.
The Superior Hiking Trail has been in the spotlight this summer with the release of a Star Tribune 6-part series about a hiker/writer and her incredible journey hiking the entire distance of the trail. From the start just south of Duluth to the end at the Canadian Border, she captures the immense beauty, varied terrain, and obstacles this awe-inspiring trail provides. Follow along at the Star Tribune – Feeling Superior page.
Visit the Superior Hiking Trail Association website to learn more about the trail, its history and how this Minnesota non-profit relies on dedicated volunteers. This fall they will be part of a Leave No Trace national campaign to help users learn how to lessen our impact and decrease the damage that can happen to trails with increased usage.
