Forever in search of a new adventure,Timberline Adventures started a series of hikes along the remarkable Superior Hiking Trail.  Conceived in the mid-1980s as a through-hiking trail extending from Duluth to the Canadian border, often along the ridgeline overlooking Superior’s North Shore, the trail extends for 286 miles. In fact over the past three years we have explored a new section each year on our way to Canada.  This year we are doing a “Best of” selection of hikes that we enjoyed the most over the past three years.
