Just back from a 6 day trip

Post by Base654 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 7:03 pm

I just got back yesterday, 6/1, from a six night trip spent mostly in Rock Harbor and Moskey. I hiked the trails from Snug harbor to Moskey and the Greenstone and connectors from the Greenstone to the Rock Harbor trail. These trails were all in good shape and the rangers report all trails are in good shape with little blow down over the trails.

Night time temps were in the low to mid 40s and the mosquitoes just started hatching on my last day, I heard of one black fly bite. I saw a few piles of snow and ice on the Tobin harbor trail. day time temps were in the low 70s on the shore and up to low 80s at the towers on top of the island. The restaurant and gift shop is set to open the 5th. the store is fully stocked and running. they even have coffee first thing in the am.

Great info...My son and I are headed here this week (first timers) and we are keeping an eye on the weather and trail conditions very closely.
Thanks for posting!
