Hartley Park

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

I will continue to say that adventure in Duluth can be found right in the backyard. Hartley Nature Center and Park is located in the heart of Duluth. It is a 640-acre park with over 10 miles of trails scattered throughout. The Superior Hiking Trail cuts right through the park, as well. Outdoor enthusiasts will take to the park to hike, trail run, cross-country ski, bike, and snowshoe. Just another landmark and another reason Duluth was voted Outside’s “Best Town Ever” in 2014! So get out and enjoy the warm-up as we go from winter to spring!

Northland Running Races

Monday, January 15th, 2018

The northland is home to some of the most pristine views of Lake Superior. Trails like the Superior Hiking Trail parallel the north shore similar to scenic highway 61; the infamous first 18 mile stretch of Grandma’s Marathon. Duluth and the surrounding area has so many great places to run, walk, hike, or bike. My girlfriend and I have come to enjoy running together as a hobby. It has been something that her and I do for stress relief and just for fun. We just recently capped off signing up for races for the 2018 year and all three races are in the northland.

SHT Adventure

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

My freshman thru senior year roommate, Brody O, and I recently went on a Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) adventure beginning in Silver Bay and continuing on to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, about 2 miles north of Highway 1 on the SHT. We wanted to get up to George H. Manitou Crosby State Park, but due to the difficult terrain, 50lb backpacks, and a close to depleted water supply with no refills we decided to halt the trip prematurely. It was an awesome trip, regardless and we learned quite a bit as we traversed the SHT.

Judge C. R. Magney State Park

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

This past weekend my girlfriend and I were staying up the north shore and decided to visit the Judge C. R. Magney State Park just north of Grand Marais, MN. This state park is a little less than 2.5 hours from Duluth, but if you are planning a trip up the north shore it is worth the extra time. We hiked up to the iconic look out over Devil’s Kettle and jumped on the superior hiking trail for some exercise. It cost $5 for a day pass to get into the park. There is also a camping area, picnic tables, and grilles set up to go along with the hiking trails. other neat locations to visit if you plan a day trip up the north shore from Duluth include: Betty’s Pies, Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, Lutsen Resort, Castle Danger Brewery, Voyageur Brewery, Temperance River State Park, Lamb’s Resort and Campground, and so many more! The College of St. Scholastica is a perfect location, centered right in the heart of some of the best hiking trails, state parks, and outdoor activities in MN!
