National Trails Day Hike
National Trails Day Hike

Castle Danger Trailhead | Two Harbors MN

 

Enjoy treats before we start hiking to celebrate the day! Both hikes meet at Castle Danger Trailhead Parking Lot. At Hwy 61 mile 36.6, turn left on Lake Co Rd 106/Silver Creek Township Rd 617 and go 2.4 mi. to trailhead parking lot on right.

Long Hike: Gooseberry Falls State Park to Castle Danger, 9.1 miles
Hike along the scenic Gooseberry River for four mi., then enjoy views from Mike’s Rock and Wolf Rock.

Short Hike: Castle Danger Trailhead to Crow Creek Valley Campsite and Back, 2.4 miles total
Take in sweeping lake views from Wolf Rock, continue through pine woods to inland view at optional Crow Valley Overlook Spur Trail. Return via same route.

All SHTA hikes begin at 10:00 a.m. rain or shine. All hikes are free of charge and open to the public. Each hike is led by a member of the Superior Hiking Trail Association and many include an orientation and briefing by an area naturalist. Wear sturdy boots or hiking shoes, bring lunch, beverages and insect repellant. *** The meeting place is always the end point of the hike. We use a group car shuttle to do the hike. All of the hikers get into half of the cars and those cars go to the starting point of the hike and everyone does the hike. Then at the end of the hike, those with cars at the end point give people with cars at the start point a ride back to their cars. Everyone always drives their own car. It might sound complicated but this system works well! ***
