The Minnesota portion of the Lake Superior Water Trail extends from the St. Louis Bay in Duluth to the Pigeon River on the Canadian Border, a distance of approximately 150 miles. The St. Louis River to Two Harbors section of the Water Trail offers paddlers the opportunity to explore undeveloped backwaters, a busy industrial port, and small resort communities.

Paddlers of Lake Superior need to be prepared mentally and physically to deal with adverse weather conditions and possess the paddling skills necessary to assure their own safety and that of others. Tell me more about this section of the Lake Superior Water Trail.
