By providing this information, you will help SHTA minimize or prevent crowding and conflict where large user groups (e.g. hikers/campers, trail races) use the same section of the Superior Hiking Trail at the same time. It also helps us gauge the level and intensity of use for maintenance purposes.
For formally organized institutions, associations, clubs, and private businesses (e.g. Scouts, running clubs, LLCs, nonprofit groups, colleges and other schools): please provide a certificate of liability insurance for the event in the amount of at least $1,000,000 for each occurrence. The Superior Hiking Trail Association must be named as an additional insured on the liability insurance and the certificate must contain this language:
"The Superior Hiking Trail Association, its officers, employees, and contractors are named via endorsement as an Additional Insured under the terms of this policy."
For large hiking-camping groups: provide this information only if your group is larger than eight people AND if you plan to camp on the trail for three nights or more.
For any and all large groups using the SHT: use of the Trail is free, of course, but maintaining and renewing it is not. We would appreciate a donation to the SHTA from your group or organization as a way to support the ongoing work to keep the SHT a world-class hiking trail. Donate here: superiorhiking.org/donate/
