The North Shore leads you along the wild and beautiful 150-mile inland coast that stretches from Duluth to the Canadian border. It guides you through historic sites, wilderness trails, and the seven state parks you’ll find along the way. 

Read The North Shore as you plan your trip; then take it along and enjoy the milepost-by-milepost descriptions of Lake Superior’s scenic splendor. Fascinating details of the history, the people, and the events on the Shore offer you a multitude of options for making your trip more enjoyable.

The North Shore guides you to breathtaking vistas and exciting adventures. Explore river gorges and cascading waterfalls. Hike scenic wilderness trails. Experience four seasons of color and light. Ski miles of freshly groomed tracks. Fish Lake Superior and the tumbling streams that feed it. Explore pathways of early settlers.

The North Shore will help you plan adventures for all the seasons-from one-day excursions to two-week vacations. It’s a great gift for everyone who loves Minnesota’s favorite destination.
