Hiking | North Shore Visitor

Linking people with nature by footpath along Lake Superior's North Shore.

Length: 11.1

This is one of the more challenging sections of the SHT, with lots of up and down, great views of the Lake and inland bluffs. It begins in the outskirts of Silver Bay and winds past beautiful Bean and Bear Lakes into Tettegouche State Park. The thick maple forests make it a popular fall colors hike.
