Overnight on the Superior Hiking Trail for a short backpack trip. This is not a beginner trip.
Will meet at Wild Valley Road Trailhead Parking lot at 8am SHARP on Labor Day (Monday 9/5). A shuttle van will pick us up and bring us to the 131st Avenue Trailhead (Fond du Lac). From there we will hike into and through Jay Cooke State Park including a stop at the Visitor Center and across the Swinging Bridge. Our day will end after a little over 12 miles and we will camp at the High Landing backpack campsite for the night overlooking the St. Louis River. The trip will conclude the next morning with a 6 mile hike back to the cars and off for home.
This is a bit of a challenging hike with good terrain variations. Everyone is responsible for their own equipment, meals and supplies and transportation to the shuttle pick up. We have a lot of time so we can walk easy and enjoy all the sites and sounds. The campsite is reserved and has enough room for 3-4 small tents or hammocks. Backpacks can be checked out through the Rovers Equipment locker. Please contact the Equipment Director to arrange a pickup.
$10 will cover the shared cost of shuttle and campsite
