Join me on the Superior Hiking Trail for a 4 day, 3 night backpack trip! I’ve been section hiking the SHT since 2020 and joined MN Rovers this past winter to meet fellow backpackers and join/coordinate trips.
We’ll start just north of Two Harbors at the Fors Road trailhead and hike ~ 28 miles to the trailend at Split Rock State Park in 4 days and 3 nights. Looking at the map this section has a few steep climbs, hiking along the ridgeline and (mostly) decent water sources. Intermediate backpacking experience recommended.
We will meet at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park around 11am June 17th and either carpool or shuttle to stage return vehicles at Split Rock. We’ll be camping at group SHT backcountry sites on June 17th, 18th, 19th and will return on the 20th.
Everyone will be responsible for their own trail food. Max 4 tents.
Trip cost will depend on whether or not we are able to leave car(s) at the trailend, or if we need to schedule a shuttle. A $10 deposit holds your spot and will be returned if we can coordinate the car shuffle. Payment details after you sign up.
I’ll schedule a zoom meeting with the group so we can meet each other, discuss trip details and ask/answer any questions that pop up.
