Re: Tentative Itinerary Feedback Requested

Wow, that is QUITE the trip! Have fun! You're hitting a lot of great places and are really going to get a taste for the island. I like how you refer to a two-week-plus hike as "some time" on Isle Royale. :) Just an FYI, the hike from Lake Desor (I'm assuming North Lake Desor) to Hugginin is going to...

Re: How to hang a tarp in a shelter

I think I need to figure out a way to add a "like" button on posts. Ingo's post would get the first like, and jrwiesz's comment to "get to the shelter at Todd Harbor" would get the second like.

Re: Malone bay to lake Desor

The hike out of Malone is a gradual uphill the entire time. Not taxing, but you know you're going UPHILL and not DOWNHILL, for sure. Also, there's long segments of the trail that get pretty boring. Last time I was there, the trail was also pretty over grown.

Re: Three Mile --> Chippewa Harbor

To directly answer your question, that 14 miles is do-able from Three Mile to Chippewa. It's relatively flat, although rocky at times. It's a gradual climb out of Daisy Farm, then once you get onto the trail that heads south into Chippewa just before Lake Richie, it's really easy, almost downhill. I...

Re: Purchasing a season pass

Last I've heard, the NPS Season Pass that works at all the National Parks DOES NOT work at Isle Royale, but maybe with the new online payment system, that has changed. Hopefully someone else who has some contact at the NPS can fill us in.

Just like beer, Isle Royale is better when shared with friends. Looking forward to your trip report.

Re: Trip suggestions for end of September.

Another vote for Feldtmann. One of my favorite trips. I've done it many times. Feldtmann Lake, Rainbow Cove, and Siskiwit Bay are awesome.

Re: Fishing at McCargo Cove

You'll need a Michigan license to fish Lake Superior. The inland lakes do not require a license. You can buy the day license on the Michigan DNR's web site. I've also had great luck fishing McCargoe right from the dock or the shore. One time I even brought waders to wade out a bit and do some castin...
