Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
May 17 - May 23
CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19:
The Beaver Basin Wilderness includes 13 miles of stunning Lake Superior shoreline from Spray Falls on the west to Sevenmile Creek on the east. The wilderness is some 3.5 miles deep. The Beaver Basin Wilderness offers opportunities for quiet, solitude, wilderness recreation, and spiritual renewal. The wilderness zone includes 8.4 miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail and 8.5 miles of connector trails as well as six backcountry campsites. We have a one week clearance every year to use power tools to clear and rehab trails, remove and replace boardwalks, and build different types of trail assets. Hand tools such as shovels, lopers, grub hoes, and other tools will also be used. Our goal is to open up and get the trails in shape for the summer hiking season. Unlike any other place on Lake Superior, Pictured Rocks offers the opportunity to explore miles of pristine beaches, hike nearly 100 miles of trails, view towering sandstone cliffs, and experience the serenity of northern woodlands.
