The Superior Hiking Trail: Magney Snively Park to Spirit Mountain
It was cold this morning when I gathered up all my stuff and some treats, water bowl, etc. for Parker. We hit the road driving southwest to Spirit Mountain Ski Area. I parked at the Superior Hiking Trail parking lot near the Duluth, Superior Alpine Club and we started hiking. I was still cool when we hit the trail but the hiking kept us plenty warm. Today's scenery was not as dramatic as yesterday's, but still we both enjoyed the walk.
When we got to the Magney-Snively Trailhead I decided that we would make our way back to the car via Skyline Parkway instead of retracing our steps on the trail. I this this was a good decision as I think Parker was starting to get tired. We made it back to the car in no time at all.
