Superior Hiking Trail – Top Ten Spots

Below is a nice video by http://superior-hiking-trail.com showing 10 spots along the Superior hiking trial they enjoyed the best. Learn more about the Superior Hiking Trialwww.shta.org

What are some of your favorite spots along the North Shore of Lake Superior (a.k.a Big Sexy)?

One of mine is the Kadunce River falls, the only way to access the base of either falls is to hike up river into the canyon.

For me, it's a tossup between the Manitou and Blesner Creek. Edge and I were at Blesner last spring. There's a nursury tree that lays across the creek, which feeds into the Baptism. I had my Hennessey strung up between two branches of that tree. 

Ferguson Creek site on the new section between Rossini Road and the Lake county demo forest. That stretch isn't much to look at. A lot of clear cut on that stretch. It's gonna be a great stretch for berry picking when they're in season. 

I've got a trip planned for the last week of Sept. I'm going to attempt an 80 miler from the Finland Rec Center to Cascade River. If I gotta, I'm doing it solo.

Cascade River, just south of Grand Marais, is absolutely beautiful.  It led to much doggie bliss for our hiking partner emmadogs.  Much people bliss too.

I like the part by Two Harbors that always smells like weed.

Section 13

I love section 13! It's a little intimidating to watch climbers up there though. I was there last year on a fairly windy day and two guys were on the ropes over the side. Winds were hitting 30mph easy. That whole stretch below Manitou is special.

Anyone taken on the drainpipe just south of Tet?

Here is a great way to turn your favorite spot into your least favorite spot; Post a story and tell the whole world about it. That way the next time you go there for some piece and quiet and solitude you can spend quality time with all the new strangers that will be hanging out at your (former) favorite spot. To each their own.

"That way the next time you go there for some piece and quiet and solitude you can spend quality time with all the new strangers that will be hanging out at your (former) favorite spot."

If you have really bad luck, or are there constantly due to abundant free time I guess. I might happen to make it to my favorite spots once every two weeks at the most. What are the chances?

I don't know what your experiences are, Bill, but I've logged in many miles on the SHT in the past 10 years. At a guess, probably closer to 300 than not. Only once in that 10 years have I had anything close to a presumptive experience to which Bill alludes, and that was a group of adolescents that smartly found other places to exist (it was late in the day and they were looking for space to light on a heavily traveled section). Everyone there is out there for the same reason you are. Hikers and backpackers on the trail as a whole are kind, courteous, and respectful of other people's space. I've shared my site and fire with quite a few of those folks and found and shared a lot of good times and swapped good stories.

As I said: everyone that's there is there for the same reason, and the negativity does nothing to further the positivity of the thread.

Bill was referring to getting some along the trail, not peace.
