My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Superior Hiking trail
Stick with the trail. It does cross the road twice but it has some very nice areas. A lot of the land around the SHT is private and posted.
