Anyone want to thru-hike the Superior Trail in May? on 12/30/2006 19:30:25 MST Print View

I am looking at thru-hiking the Superior Trail(Northern Minnesota) in May when the weather starts getting warm. I have no problem going solo but would rather have a partner along. This way I wouldn't have to rely on a shuttle to get back to my car, plus it is always nice to have someone to talk to around the fire at night.

Anyways, as of now the details are not worked out. I just know that I will be hiking North from Two Harbors whenever the snow(if we even get any) thaws out and the weather warms up. I am looking at finishing in 10-12 days maybe taking a day off halfway through or something.

Anyone down?

Derek -

I did the SHT solo Southbound in 2005 and I recommend it as a great semi-long trail for anyone. It's well marked, nearly impossible to get lost on, has excellent re-supply options (although not necessary) and has a multitude of safety escapes for those worried about that sort of thing.

View my trail journal, photos and a gearlist (I did this previous to being ultra-enlightened fyi):
