Re: First-Timers to the Island

Maybe a short east side loop would work for you. I wouldnt want to do an end to end with that few of days. Dont get me wrong it is totally doable but you will want more time then that to soak in the cool sites. With your days you could do: June 25 Rock harbor to 3 mile June 26 3Mile to Moskey June 2...

Re: Feedback on 9 day itinerary

Looks like a great 9day plan. If you are into fishing, Lake Ritchie is usually good for a pike or two.

Re: What are you spending your dividend on? 2019 super special edition

Probably just a new pair of hiking pants and cashing the rest out. I finally found pants that I love and I want a second pair before they discontinue them!

Re: 5 full days of hiking- Rock Harbor to Windigo

If you'd like to see what the minong is like (esp the beaver dams) check out the video series that my husband and I did on the minong. We wanted to showcase that trail so others knew what to expect. We went rock harbor to windigo and we hit the actual minong on part 5 in the series if you want to s...

Re: 5 full days of hiking- Rock Harbor to Windigo

Do you plan to do the minong or the greenstone? I was a big fan of the sites along the minong bc they were on Lake Superior.

Re: Family trip planning

Don’t use the spigot to shower. All the non natural soap will run off into the wilderness. Not exactly LNT. Embrace the being in nature part. One doesn’t have to shower every day. There are perfectly nice shower facilities in Windigo for a reasonable price. Yes you can buy fishing gear in the island...

You’ll have dry spots at camp. It’s just the trail that is muddy at times!

Re: Hiking Shoes?

Recommendation: Whatever footgear you choose, the core concept to remember is this. Hold the shoe up with your left hand under the toe, right hand under the heel. Try to twist the sole of the shoe. If the sole twists, discard that option. You want a shoe, what sole does not twist when the above act...
