Re: June '11 Feldtman Loop

oh yea I am sure itll be overgrown. I am a huge fan of the minong, so I am not worried there, really hoping we can make the journey. If not, we will be booking for 2021 as soon as we can.

Re: June '11 Feldtman Loop

Was hoping to hit the Feldtman loop this year. Our seaplane reservations are still good, but we shall see how that turns out. I love reading these older posts.

Re: Rock Harbor campground - does it fill up / campers turned away?

1) the campground is a 2 minute walk from the dock 2) RH does fill up, but that said, many folks are willing to share a site or a shelter 3) you could get lucky, but RH will likely be full or filling fast 4) can I suggest a plan B to hike out to 3 mile instead of staying at the lodge (if rock harbor...

Re: Thoughts with travel due to COVID 19

I think the park will make that decision for you. If we are still under shelter in place orders then traveling unnecessarily is not a good idea. I don’t believe the park will open if we (Michigan) are still under that order.

Re: Picking a route? need help?

Arriving RH on the Ranger III on July 10. Assuming it gets there at 3 and I can get going before 4, will I have enough daylight to get to DF? I'd hate to waste a night at 3 Mile. Sure you can make it. It is definitely doable if you have some hiking experience. The trail is not super easy but I woul...

Re: First time trip in July 5 nights itinerary help pls

^ did that exact route torpified described on our first trip to the island. I have it linked below if you want to see what those campspots look like in video. That route has a little bit of everything the island has to offer. Keep your stay limits in mind and you will be fine. You could also toss la...

Re: Beginner trip for 12 and 9 year old boys

Sounds like you have some pretty cool adventurous kids. I would say doing a "shakedown" hike back home before heading to the island will help you plan what mileage would be good for the kiddos. Personally If I was you, I would boat or plane into Rock harbor and maybe hit daisy farm , 3 mile, and roc...
