The Superior Hiking Trail is a 306 mile trial which runs from the border of Wisconsin through Minnesota’s North Shore and ends at the border of Minnesota and Canada.

We start out on the White Sky Rock overlook which gives you a spectacular view of Caribou Lake. Cascade River is one of my favorite campsite. Let’ s have dinner down by the water. The falls are near by, great side trip after camp is set up. Spruce creek has a beautiful moss wall next to the roaring creek.
