Event Information

Description

Get pumped for another backpacking trip on the calendar this summer!! This trip will hike a beautiful 22-mile section of the Superior Hiking Trail from Lutsen to Grand Marais, Minnesota across four days. No prior experience is required for this trip, so all are welcome to sign up! Your Outing membership includes all the essential gear (backpack, sleeping pad, and sleeping bag) to get you on the trail.

The deposit for this trip is $40, which includes parking fees and food on the trail. Since we'll be using personal vehicles, everyone should expect to pay an additional $30 or so to the driver they ride with.
