The Superior Hiking Trail offers visitors the opportunity to travel by foot to many unique places along the North Shore that would likely be inaccessible otherwise. The trail takes hikers past gorgeous lakes and waterfalls, up to incredible Lake Superior overlooks and through the beautiful Boreal Forest. Though the trail as a whole is something we recommend to all hikers who are able to explore, there is a list of trail sections that we prefer over the others.
One of these sections leads hikers to Wolf Rock. Wolf Rock is a Superior Hiking trail overlook near Two Harbors that allows visitors to see panoramic views of Lake Superior, the surrounding shoreline, and the forest from over 900 feet. The trail to the overlook rises rapidly from the parking lot and gains over 200 feet in elevation over the course of a half-mile. Once hikers make it to the top they will be rewarded with incredible overlooks and breathtaking views.
From Two Harbors, drive on Highway 61 for approximately 10 miles. Turn left onto Lake County 106. Drive 2.3 miles and park in the Superior Hiking Trail parking lot on the right side of the road. Take the hiking trail that is furthest to the south (if your back is to the road, it will be the trail furthest to the right).
