Porkies Trip Limit This Year 35

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.  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.

    Great group of new people with a few of my favorite long time members. As true... when others drop it means one hell of a great trip. Jun Jun... well done! What a great group in the caravan back home. My first Porkies was best ever and this last trip was right up there. Good Luck to all in Chicago Suburban Backpackers.

    Is there any water at the Saturday night site? If not can I plan to use/share someone's water filter. I have one but doesn't seem to be working correctly.

    If anyone wants to meet up for lunch at Titletown Brewery in Green Bay on your way up, let me know. Colin and I are planning on leaving Chicago sometime in the morning (depending on when we'll get up and actually get on the road), but we will stop there to eat :) Also, if anyone needs a last minute ride, let me know. We can fit one more as well.

    Hey Koustubh,

    Go to google maps and type Lake of The Clouds in Michigan. The directions will put you right on the parking lot. From there, go up the little hill to the view point. There you will see a trail to the left. Take that trail for about .5 of a mile until the trail splits. Now go down towards the lake for about .5 of a mile and the group camp site will be on your right. If you see the arrow pointing to the cabin on your left, you went to far. Backup100 feet and the camp site is there.
