Great starting point!!
Best: I was completely unfamiliar with both the area & the Superior Trail. This app was the perfect launch point for my research on a family hiking trip to North Shore MN. We hiked the lower routes with my 5 & 6 year olds & had an AMAZING time. The routes were slightly off the beaten path allowing us to escape any crowds! The only reason I didn't give it a 5, is it would have been super cool to have gps capabilities.
Definitely Just Highlights
This app is truly for day trippers--even the lengths listed are round trip lengths for scenic out and backs or loops. Not for SHT thru or section hiking, and needs updates to even work with current iOS.
No gps functionality
It's nice someone took the time to make this app but it's not really useful as a tool. It's seems to have no functionality besides pointing you towards buying a copy of the trail book. Which, in that, serves it's purpose.
