At the middle of September we’re just beginning to see changing of the leaves further inland from Lake Superior.
In a couple of weeks we expect the explosion of fall color to begin, meanwhile there is still a lot to do and see in Two Harbors!
With the cooler weather and lack of crowds, especially mid-week before the leaves turn color, it is an excellent time to explore the many hiking trails along the North Shore.
Perhaps the best known trail is the Superior Hiking Trail. This 313 mile trail extends from Duluth to the Canadian border with numerous access points along the way.
Fall is one of the best times to be on the Superior Hiking Trail. The fall colors are gorgeous, the insects are gone, and the weather is cooler. It’s a wonderful time to get out on the trail and hike through blazing forests or to gorgeous overlooks of Lake Superior.

Now, in its fifth year, the Lake Superior 20/20 Studio Art Tour offers visitors a variety of artistic talent to peruse while enjoying the beauty of the region: Glass, ceramics, watercolor, woodworking, oil and acrylic paintings, printmaking, jewelry, and photography, round out the work that will be for sale during the tour. The tour will be well-marked along Highway 61 between Two Harbors and Duluth as well as the various “side roads” where most of the studios are located in the woods. Look for the bright neon green signs and balloons with the tour’s logo of a pair of glasses on them.
Be sure and check-out the numerous activities taking place at Gooseberry Falls State Park.
