Hiking at Pinckney Recreation Area (~7-8 miles, 3 hours)

  • November 17, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Just another long and pointless circular hike followed by a celebratory libation.  I will be carrying my loaded backpack (you do not have to).  Pinckney Rec is about 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor and 20 miles southwest of Brighton.

Meeting place (Silver Lake parking lot):
Silver lake has a huge parking lot with two sections. We will be meeting at the northern most point of the north lot which is right by the Crooked Lake trailhead. The satellite map below shows the parking lot and the trail, you can also use this map to get directions.

Afterwards:
Pinckney Pub is about 5 miles away and it is at 10292 Dexter-Pinckney Road, Pinckney, MI. It is on the west side of the road right across from Pinckney High School (get them started early...). The following is directions from the Silver Lake parking lot to Pinckney Pub.

    According to latest weather report, we will be off the trail before the really bad storms hit which will be after 3. So, yes, the hike is on.

    A reminder that it is opening weekend for firearm deer. It sounded like Baghdad 2003 at dawn though usually quite mid-day. I'd wear orange...
