Beaver Bay to Silver Bay

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

Length: 4.7 SouthNorth

The Superior Hiking Trail traces a serpentine route through one of the more developed sections of the North Shore, almost entirely within Silver Bay city limits. Despite the near-constant presence of taconite operations, highways, and towns, this section offers dramatic views as well as an intimate look at the Beaver River and its gorgeous falls. Easy access at both ends makes this a worthwhile journey, especially for the local history buff.
