Good choice - and so much better than Boaty McBoatface.

You can post more pictures in the replies.
Is there a trick to it? I tried dragging photos into a reply, but it still says the quota is full.

Re: TR: 7/12-7/24 2019 End to end loop, Rock-Windigo Minong, Windigo-Rock Greenstone

I was wondering about the stretch of Minong Ridge between Windigo and NLD-- How long did that take you? Did you happen to see anyone that was backcountry camping? 7 hours of hiking (I'm not a very fast hiker). I didn't see anyone backcountry camping at all. It's a long hike, but not that difficult ...

Trip Report - End to end loop trip on the Minong and the Greenstone After going on a very challenging and hiking adventure, I found myself longing for a new adventure. I decided to return to Isle Royale, having made one other trip there in 2015. I wanted to do an end-to-end trip, having never been ...

Re: End to end loop hike

Resurrecting this old thread to say I DID THIS! Thank you all for the great information. I went from "Is this possible?" to "I think I could do this" to "Here I go!" I'll put together a full trip report in a bit - I just got home yesterday. My route: DF, MC, TH, LT, NLD, WC, WC (0), SLD, HL, MB, TM,...

Re: End-to-end loop trip - itinerary feedback

I have my ferry tickets already, so I will have to stick to the days I have planned. This started out as an end-to-end trip where I was trying to choose between the Minong or the Greenstone, and somehow ended up deciding to do both. I had a really big adventure last year and started planning this tr...

Re: End to end loop hike

So what I'm hearing is this should be possible to do and hopefully not too difficult! After reading the blog posts, I realize the itinerary I was thinking of is much easier than his was, and I'm planning on more days. I don't think I could handle 20 mile days. So this sounds doable - thanks for the ...

End to end loop hike

Has anyone ever done an end to end loop hike on Isle Royale - do one way on the Minong and the other on the Greenstone? Looking at the maps, it seems like it could be done over a couple of weeks. While I think doing such a thing would be amazing, I also recognize that parts of it would be torture. I...
