The Greenstone is going to remind you a lot of the Knobstone or Low Gap, minus the road crossings. If you're coming through Indy, honk on the way through and I'll wave to you.

Haha. Found a Hoosier here in the Forum. Please tell me there are more than the minus road crossings thing at Isle Royale. I like knobstone but to be honest, If I find something more scenic nearby that offers challenge, I would never go to Knobstone. At least yesterday the weather was pleasant. lol
Should have qualified the comment by saying the Greenstone from S. Desor to Windigo will remind you of the Knobstone or Low gap. From Daisy up to the Greenstone and then down to chickenbone, it won't remind you of either of those. :D

Thank you everyone here in the forum for all the help in the past couple of months. Got back to Columbus, IN this morning after great adventure at Isle Royale. Was able to manage most of my planned itinerary. About 100+ backpacking miles in total from 1Sept-6Sept, 2017. Backpacked from RH to Windigo and back to RH via Tobin Harbor, Greenstone Ridge, Hunginnin Cove, Minong Ridge, Indian Portage, Lake Richie, Rock Harbor and Stoll Trails. Every moment was very memorable.

I am planning to post a Trip Report but it would take some time so thought of giving an update and appreciate your help in the trip planning as soon as I got back from the trip.
