This is a group for anyone interested in backpacking, camping, hiking, exploring the outdoors, etc. (especially in northern lower Michigan). All skill levels are welcomed. Typical outing is Friday evening / early Saturday through Sunday afternoon in Michigan ... especially the Huron and Manistee National Forests. Backpacking typically from a few miles to less than 20 miles over the weekend, whatever people are comfortable with. Desired outcome - have fun enjoying what Michigan has to offer in terms of nature / outdoors. Note that groups are intentionally kept small (max 4) to ensure we are not overwhelming camp sites which are mostly (entirely) backcountry.  Pack out what we pack in. Also, there may be fees to park (you are responsible for your own vehicle). Members who have not been active (at least visiting site within last 3 months) will be removed. Let's have fun!!!
