Any suggestions for a 4 night 5 day hike somewhere in the midwest ? Thinking anywhere within 12 or so hours of Green Bay, WI. I have done quite a bit of hiking in the U.P so any suggestions beside that would be great.

Thanks in Advance!

How about crossing the UP to Lake Superior Provincial Park or Pukaskwa?

I hiked the coastal trail in LSPP long ago, very nice. Better IMO then the options in the UP, like the porkies or pictured rocks. I haven't had a chance to do Pakaskwa, but I remember that park had a problem bear recently, and may have shut down part of the coastal trail there.

I have done parts of the superior trail, it might be a solid option for this trip, but I would like to try out something new.

Canada would also be an option, but one of our group does not have a passport/passcard so I am not sure if that would work out.

Any other ideas for short 4-5 day trips?

Looks like 12 hours should be plenty to get you to the Ozark Trail.

Canada - I had to escalate a passport last time mine expired and it still took 2.5 weeks and I believe it was $150... so that would be cutting it clost.

The Maah Daah Hey and Ozark Trails both seem like very viable options. I was just in S.Dakota for a badlands trip about a month again and it was great (minus the tremendous amount of rain that got dumped on us one night....sticky situation)!

So glad I signed up to be a member of BPL! Experience and helpful suggestions from other members is great!!!!

FYI Maah Daah Hey Trail is half under water. Was just in that area a few weeks ago.

Well that narrows out that trail. Guess that leaves Ozarks or could possibly do Isle Royale since it's a lot closer.

Unless anyone else has any other suggestions.
