This is the ultimate Upper Peninsula getaway. Paddle for 3 full days 15 miles each day, slightly less on the final day. Providing one zero day, which is a day off. It is common to have 2 short days rather than one full zero. The group will decide.
Arriving at the take out, we will switch gears and get our hiking packs on. Leaving the Kayaks behind we will hike back to Miners Beach, hiking 15 miles each day on the return.
Upon arrival 30 minutes early for each person in the group, you will receive a pack shakedown to ensure that the pack is light enough to meet ultralight standards. Ultralight backpacking skills will be introduced on the journey.
Ultralight is a pack – not counting consumable items such as food and fuel – that is less than 10 lbs. Walking with such little weight makes hiking accessible for many who can’t carry 50 lbs in the old style of packing.
