Buy the book: “The Superior Hiking Trail Story”

Book cover showing person overlooking forested valley

By 1987, Rudi had hiked every trail, river and summit along the North Shore of Lake Superior. There, he discovered a sign in the woods, “The Superior Hiking Trail.” So began his quest to know every inch of this trail. In his new book, Rudi matches his stunning photography with quotes taken from trail register log-books—Sentiments from the Heart—and throws in the history of how the trail came to be.

Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota features in the book for it’s contributions to completing the trail. The trail could not have been completed without that assistance and, of course, the thousands of hours of volunteer effort provided by Superior Hiking Trail Association members and trail enthusiasts.
