No matter what length, any hike is more fun if you are properly prepared. Always wear sturdy shoes. If you plan to be out an extended time, let someone know where you are going and your expected time of return. Carry a map, compass, or GPS, and know how to use them. Lake Superior effects the local weather- be prepared for changes, including cool conditions and rain.

Pets are permitted only in specific areas. Please check the Pets site bulletin before you plan your hike.
Bicycles are not permitted on trails.
Backcountry permits are required only if you plan to camp overnight in the backcountry.

Please use toilets where provided. Otherwise, bury waste 4-6 inches deep and cover with mineral soil.
Carry out your trash.

Lace up your hiking shoes ... grab a snack, water, map and compass or gps ... and head on down the trail of adventure!
