Exploring the Minnesota North Shore | Duluth Pack

Exploring the Minnesota North Shore

The Minnesota North Shore is the expanse of coastline spanning over 150 miles that starts in Duluth and continues along Lake Superior into Ontario. Over 3 million people visit the Northshore every year, and it's not hard to see why. There are state parks, hiking trails, historical sites, and scenic towns all along the path that are great for any hiker, camper, or canoer to stop and explore. Be sure to make a day or weekend out of the experience, as it's easy to fall in love with the scenery, so packing smart is a must if you're going to stay a bit longer. Let's go over some of the sights that make the North Shore one of the best hiking trips you'll ever experience. 
Aside from the starting city of Duluth (which is a must-stop of course), there are dozens of spots to stop and enjoy the natural beauty of the state. The first major must-see is Two Harbors. At 24 miles from the start, Two Harbors features the only real working lighthouse on the North Shore. It also has the Sonju trail, which allows you to see an ore ship being loaded. 
How To Find The Right Canoe Pack | Duluth Pack

How To Find The Right Canoe Pack

The BWCAW is the most heavily used wilderness area in the United States of America. Thousands of canoers travel to these areas each year for traditional camping and canoeing experiences. While it is an adventure, prepping for the trip is not always the easiest task. So how do you know what canoe pack and gear to bring and what is going to be the best way to travel light without sacrificing comfort and resources?

Picking the best canoe pack sounds easy, but the planning for the trip can be the most crucial part. Forgetting or having to leave out even one item can impact your entire experience. Make sure you have the right amount of space for what you're bringing. Lucky for you, Duluth Pack has made it our priority to make sure we can prepare you for almost any scenario.

Outdoor Guide: How to Prepare for Your Boundary Waters Canoe and Wilderness Camping Trip

Every year, over 250,000 canoers and hikers make their way to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Wilderness for a truly remarkable outdoor experience. But before a camper can make their trek, they should make sure to have all the necessary gear. Backpacking and canoe trips in the BWCAW are not your typical camping adventure. The experience is a lot more rugged while being in the wilderness for longer periods. Because of this, packing properly and proportionally is key.

So, what are the essential tools and gear you should be taking with you?
