Threading its way across our landscape, the North Country National Scenic Trail (NST) links outstanding scenic, natural, recreational, historic, and cultural areas in seven of our northern States--New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota. Some feel that the segment within Pictured Rocks NL may be the most scenic of the entire trail. This 43-mile segment parallels the shore of Lake Superior, sometimes at beach level and sometimes on top of the high, colorful, sandstone cliffs offering spectacular views across and down into the clear waters of Lake Superior. More people may be encountered along this segment, because it is within an already popular destination park and because it is so convenient to hikers due to the shuttle service provided.
