Michigan GGG (or just a plain old backpacking trip) on 02/01/2014 08:48:05 MST Print View

***looks like the general consensus is for the Manistee River Trail on the 25th***


Folks,

To follow up from the very successful Meetups last year with the Michigan\Wisconsin and Colorado crew I propose two more winter trips at the Pictured Rocks Trail and Manistee River Trail.

I am based in mid Michigan so can car pool if it suits folks.

Proposed dates
21st-23rd March
4-6th April
11th-13th April

Please reply here with what date and location you would prefer.

Cheers,

Stephen

I totally could do April 4-6, and I'd be up for either Manistee or Pictured Rocks. I need a trip up north anyway, so it would be nice to head to my old stomping grounds!

Manistee would be nice because then CharlieDog could join us................he likes Manistee a lot!!

Hi Jen,

Great to hear from you, let's pencil in that date so.

Are dogs not allowed in a Pictured rocks?

No dogs allowed on the trails at Pictured Rocks. :(

Shoot, I'll be out west for both of those April weekends.

Anyone interested in an early spring MRT hike, let me know!

Hi Sumi,

That's a shame dogs are not allowed.

Hopefully we might see you on one of the March trips.

"No dogs allowed on the trails at Pictured Rocks. :("

Y'all had me scared for a minute. I'm doing a hike at Pictured Rocks, and I thought you said no Doug's allowed!

Sumi, could you go any later? I can't do the 11th, but as we get further into the semester I have options.....

I'm pretty flexible on the date, as of now. I'd prefer somewhere in the lower peninsula, though, to keep my drive time reasonable. It takes me about 4 to 4 1/2 hours to get to the MRT or JRP.

Yes! Second half of April and into May looks pretty wide open for now.
