    This is such a beautiful hike! I did it earlier this year. You can easily bag Bull-of-the-Woods Mountain, Frasier Mountain & Mount Walter along the way without much of a side trip. I have GPS tracks if you're interested.

    I don't know if I want to go or not. This will be an expensive trip and I rather avoid that. That being said I still have a lot of interest in state high points
