Re: Water sources/Stream in Minong trail

The map is pretty close. I Just finished the Minong last week. If my memory serves me right. McCargo to Todd not much water access. Todd to Little Todd Maybe three streams crossed the trail. Little Todd to N Desor one stream and a beaver dam. N Desor to Windigo, multiple places to find water, three ...

Re: general conditions--July 2017

I just finished my trip. Started at Chippewa Harbor up to McCargo and across the Minong. I had intended on doing the Feldtman, but everyone I talk with, coming off the loop, said how overgrown the trail was, so decided to do it another time. You may want to think about catching the Voyager to McCarg...

Re: Camping overnight at Moskey Basin or McCargoe Cove?

McCargo is great, but Moskey is awesome, in my opinion. I'm starting at Chippewa this year, up to McCargo and then across the Minong. Even going g to check out East chicken bone.

Re: McCargo or W. Chickenbone

McCargo definitely! Chickenbone is not bad either, but it's not McCargo.

Re: A couple quick questions (toilet paper and showers)

If I remember correctly, last year the shower was $6.00 and it was cold. Not sure about the towel and soap. I hike with a micro fiber towel and always carry soap for washing.

Re: Itinerary Advice-Chippewa Harbor to Rock Harbor

Thanks, Base654! Much appreciated! barb.dobberteen - We'll be there later next week, so our timing is off. However, I'm not sure there would be a price difference. I understood the IR Resorts water taxi to be a per person rate. I don't remember if there was a per person break. Check your price on t...

Re: Aug 2016 itinerary

Thank you! I did make a typo. I'm trying to decide if I should reserve the water taxi back to Rock harbor the day before we leave to go back to Copper Harbor and spend the last night there or reserve the taxi on the same day as we leave back to Copper harbor. Any thoughts?

Re: Picnic Tables

Alite makes a packable chair that is 1 lb 6 oz called the mayfly. Great chair, but pricey. Very comfortable.

Re: Malone bay to lake Desor

Thank you for the info. I'm thinking 10 miles a day at most is very doable. I'm also planning on a couple zero days to just kick back and relax.

Malone bay to lake Desor

Hi Everyone! Have a 10 day trip planned, starting August 18. First time to the Island. I was planning on taking the water taxi to Malone bay and starting from there. How difficult is the hike up to lake Desor for the average person? I will have a first time hiker with me and want it to be enjoyable ...
