Crosby Manitou State Park to Caribou River

Linking people with nature by footpath along Lake Superior's North Shore.

Length: 8.1 SouthNorth

This section of the SHT is quite dramatic in terms of topography, offering broad views of both inland ridges, ponds, and rivers, and of Lake Superior. The SHT here is more rugged than most sections and visits a variety of forest habitats. The western half of the section skirts valley of the wild Manitou River, while the eastern half explores the cedar groves of the dramatic Caribou River Gorge.
