We've Moved! New SHTA Office Location in Two Harbors
We'll update signage; please update your records! 
The Superior Hiking Trail Association headquarters has moved to a new location in beautiful, downtown Two Harbors, Minnesota. 

New mailing address
: PO Box 315, Two Harbors, MN 55616-0315
New office address: 618 1st Avenue, Two Harbors, MN 55616

The move was initiated when the P.K. Anderson House, where the SHTA has leased its office for three decades, was put up for sale in the summer of 2020. The Association is excited to reaffirm our commitment to the North Shore and the Two Harbors community by relocating downtown, less than a block from Castle Danger Brewery, The Lake Bank, and other local businesses. The SHTA joins other small retailers moving to fill downtown storefronts and attract visitors, and the convenient new location will afford us space to grow, host volunteer trainings and events, and welcome guests inside when it is safe to do so.

The SHTA Office and Trail Information Center will remain closed to the public until further notice.
