The Superior Hiking Trail Association is planning a hike celebration and trail project for National Trails Day, on Saturday, June 7th, 2014

 

Each June, trail groups across the country celebrate National Trails Day. The day is organized by the American Hiking Society to highlight the importance of trails. 

The SHTA is planning to host two hikes in

Cook County. The long and short route options will offer hiking for almost everyone! Separate from the hikes they will complete a maintenance project to provide an opportunity to volunteer to improve the Superior Hiking Trail.

 

On Saturday, June 7 at 10:00 a.m. -- Both hikes meet at the Cook Co. Rd. 1 trailhead parking lot. At Hwy. 61 milepost 78.8, turn left on Cook Co. Rd. 1 (Cramer Rd.) and go 3.6 miles to parking lot on right.

 

--Long Hike 8.0 miles, Temperance River State Park to Cook County Road 1. Hike along the beautiful Temperance and Cross Rivers for several miles with many climbs and descents. The trail then comes to marshy Boney’s Meadow area and then climbs to Tower Overlook for one last view. Meet at the Cook Co. Rd. 1 parking lot.

 

--Short Hike 2.2 miles, Cook County Road 1 to Dyers Creek campsite and back. This out-and-back hike has an abundance of wildflowers as it winds through mixed conifers toward the confluence of the Two Island River and Dyer’s Creek.

 

No pre-registration is required for hikes.
