Superior Hiking Trail Association seeking new executive director

The Superior Hiking Trail Association, headquartered in Two Harbors, is seeking a dynamic leader to serve in the role of executive director.

The SHTA is dedicated to constructing, maintaining and promoting a world-class 310-mile natural surface trail paralleling Lake Superior from Wisconsin to Ontario. The 5,000-plus member organization has a small knowledgeable staff, a passionate group of volunteers and a committed, active board of directors dedicated to the success of a new strategic plan.

The trail is experiencing tremendous growth in use, awareness and financial support as it is discovered, experienced and enjoyed by day hikers, trail runners, backpackers and other outdoor enthusiasts from Minnesota and beyond. The enthusiasm for the trail resulted in winning funding from REI’s “Every Trail Connects” competition in 2015 to complete the southern end of the trail as well as loops in Duluth. The SHTA competed against better-known trails in coastal states but thanks to members and trail users the SHTA was the first to max out REI’s online voting competition.

General responsibilities for the new executive director include leading the organization in maintaining and improving the trail as well as managing the organization’s marketing communications, fundraising and financial management.

Salary range is $52,000-$58,000. A complete benefit package, including health and life insurance, retirement savings plan and paid time off.
