August 24-26 North Country Trail (Intermediate Level)

  • Aug 24, 2012 · 7:00 PM

This trip will be on the North Country Trail Northeast of Solon Springs and will be an Intermediate Level hike.

We'll arrive Friday August 24th at the Highland Town Hall Trailhead, which is located on Douglas Cty Hwy S. There is parking, potable water, and a campsite near the trailhead. Cars will be shuttled either that Friday night, or first thing Saturday morning.

Saturday we'll pack up bright and early and hike 12.1 miles to the Winneboujou Bluff campsite. There should be sources to filter water along the way, however it would be a good idea to be able to carry enough drinking water to cover the 12 miles. Potable water should be available at the Saturday night camping area.

Sunday will feature an 11 mile hike to the Lake Ruth Trailhead on Bayfield Cty Hwy A.

If time permits, we'll gather up for a group dinner on the way home.

I have added a map in the files section Titled NCTScan.

    Have a good time. The Winneboujou campsite is fabulous. Long walk down to water but looked like a nice walk. We hiked through here in April, except that we started further west and did not stay at either of those campsites. Photos from our hike are here. https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/media/set/?set=a.421227237902417.100877.191248707566939&type=3
