it's time to enjoy the pincushion trails in the warm weather


It's a great time of year to explore the beautiful trails at Pincushion.  There are all sorts of birds in the trees, and lots of wildlife tracks on the trails.  All trails are mowed throughout the summer, so there are lots of opportunities for walkers and runners to explore.  There are new sections of the Superior Hiking Trail that are a big improvement for day-hikes to the Pincushion Overlook and onward to the Devil Track gorge.  The trailhead for those new SHT segments begins at the east end of the Pincushion parking lot.  
Volunteers will be working during the summer and fall to keep the trails clear and to trim back brush from the edges of the trails that interfere with ski-trail grooming in the winter.  If you're interested to help with that, please send an email to pincushiontrails@gmail.com.
Another event to look forward to is the Annual Fishermen's Picnic Run at Pincushion, hosted by NSSRC.  The Fish Pic Run was cancelled last year due to Covid, but will return this year on August 7th.  Registration is now open at

Announcements
Things are returning to more normal conditions at Pincushion this summer after a challenging Covid year.  Here are a few changes and things to keep in mind as you enjoy the Pincushion trails this summer.
 
  • The Pincushion chalet is open to the public
  • Dogs are allowed on all trails, but must be kept on leash.  This is both a courtesy to other trail users and a safety measure, as there are wolves nearby.
  • There are no fees or trail passes needed for using the trails during the summer, but donations to the North Superior Ski and Run Club are welcome to help the club continue to maintain the trails.  You can donate on-line at http://pincushiontrails.org or drop a donation into the box outside the Pincushion chalet.
