Itinerary advice for 5 Day Starting June10th

Post by Mrmo » Sun Jun 09, 2019 6:47 pm

Taking a 5 day trip to IR with my son who is graduating from HS this year and we are very excited (we start tomorrow!). We have experience backpacking so are well packed.

For our itinerary I have the following. I would really appreciate any feedback or advice (first time on the island) along with any advice on the options/questions below. Thanks in advance and will post our trip after!

Monday: Copper Harbor to Rock Harbor
Copper Harbor 8:00AM arrive Rock Harbor 11:30:AM
Water Taxi RH to Moskey Basin 2:30
Option: Day Hike MB to Lake Richie (4.6miles Round Trip). Worth It? OR is there a better day hike or something to do at MB?

Tuesday: MB to Daisy Farm 3.9miles

Wednesday: DF to Lane Cove 6.9miles
Thursday: LC to 3Mile (4.6miles) OR spent 2 nights at LC and 6.9 to Rock Harbor? Which is better?

Friday: 3Mile to RH (or from Lane Cover if stay 2 nights). Lunch in RH. Catch 2:45 to Copper Harbor

Sounds like a reasonable plan. Be sure and spend the evening watching the dusk fall over Moskey Basin from atop the high rocks just south of the dock, if it’s not raining.
