I'd like to get out in the next 3-4 weeks somewhere close to home. I'm from the cities. Anyone else out there? Maybe Superior Hiking Trail?Nov 6, 2012 at 9:03 pm #1926758

Much of the Superior Hiking Trail is closed during the firearms deer hunting season. Even if not, I stay out of the woods for those 16 days. I know MANY safe and responsible hunters but it takes only one ….
But I have been trying to get out at least once a month and don't have a November trip yet. Some state parks might be safe.
PM me, please.Nov 7, 2012 at 1:00 pm #1926901
I live up in Duluth MN and know the SHT very well. PM me as well as I'd love to get out with you guys for a trip!

Well, hunting ends on the 18th. So what you're saying is…we're going out the weekend of the 23rd?
I PMd you both. I live in Burnsville. I went to Wild River two weekends ago and am planning on Frontenac this weekend (pending on weather). The state park trails are kind of lame, IMO. Do you know of any other good backpacking parks? I plan on using these two parks, along with Afton to do some gear experimenting/snow shoeing in the winter months.Nov 8, 2012 at 10:31 am #1927101
I'll be in Montana the weekend of the 23rd, sorry.Nov 8, 2012 at 10:34 am #1927105
That's okay. Lets find another time.Nov 8, 2012 at 2:33 pm #1927142

Like I said, I'm trying to get out monthly. Am also in the TC area.
Pretty much anywhere on the SHT AFTER deer hunting season is OK by me.
I've seen Chad hike though and I can't match his pace or distance … perhaps if he's adaptable?
If Nate still wants to do November I like hiking at Afton but the trails are still relatively civilized. I believe St. Croix State Park has quite a bit of trail but I've never hiked there. I'm told the North Country Trail in Northern WI can be nice and also segments in north central MN. Border Route Trail sounds interesting too but it's a long way to go for a weekend.
Nate, you might find it useful to join the "hiker" group at groups.yahoo.com … discussions are mainly about the SHT and WI/MN parts of NCT
Will respond to your email.Nov 11, 2012 at 11:08 am #1927633

I'm in a similar situation, Jim. I have nothing planned for November so I am trying to squeeze something in for the weekend of the 24th. Would anybody be interested in a key-swap on the SHR? Each party would start on one end, we'd meet in the middle, swap keys, and then meet up after to trade cars back.Nov 13, 2012 at 5:08 am #1927961
Nate I am totally adaptable! I don't care how fast or far we go just that we get out and have some fun!
Also I haven't been hiking in a bit due to freelance work so I'm going to be slower and fatter than last time you saw me. ;)Nov 13, 2012 at 10:30 am #1928025
I emailed you about this weekend. Do you have any ideas about what section to do?
