The very scenic Porcupine mountains. Hike along lake Superior and then take the trail up to the water fall where we will camp at the group site on the Big Carp River Trail. Sunday we will hike in the mountains to Lake of the Clouds and then out for late lunch before driving home. Please be advised that you need a 25 degree bag or warmer. If you need any gear just post here or write to me.
The Porcupine Mountain Wilderness is always one of our most popular backpacking trips. Due to some permit and backcountry changes at the park, we had to make changes to our trip this year, including limiting the number of people and increasing the fee to obtain permits ahead of time. As we get more leaders to sign up, we can open up the trip to additional people and post separate trips for different level hikers.
Cost for this trip is $14, which includes a $5 Meet-up fee and backcountry permit fee for Friday and Saturday night. No refunds will be offered. We will pick up permits on Friday upon arrival and possibly Saturday morning if we do not make the visitor center before it closes on Friday.
Individuals are responsible for splitting gas within their own car pools. A park admission pass is required for each car parking at the Lake of the Clouds parking lot. (If you park on M-107 and walk in, you can avoid the fee).
