Potawatomi hike - ~ 10-12 miles ~ 4-5 hours
Link to meetup location: https://goo.gl/maps/aBMo2jGbp2K2 This is a moderate to difficult hike depending on your experience and physical condition. Quite HILLY. We will be walking at a good pace (about 2.5 - 3 miles/hr depending on hilliness, not counting any breaks). There is an option to cut off the last 3 miles and make it a 15 mile hike (but not less than that). How to get there: Continue past 8555 Silver Hill Rd., Pinckney, MI until you see a large parking lot. Drive further up the hill to the SECOND parking lot where we meet at the end on the grass near marker 1. We will pause on the trail a few times and stop to eat a snack that you bring at the Blind Lake Campground. You should also pack a couple of full water bottles (there are pump wells on the way to refill). The trail is shared with the mountain bikers who ride in the opposite direction to the hikers (so they will be coming at us). The trail goes through a variety of landscape, some hills, rocks, sand, along various lakes, etc but it is all scenic. Depending on the pace and amount of stops in between, we should finish in about 4-5 hours. The trail starts and ends at the Silver Lake beach access. We will assemble at 10:30 am and start the hike promptly at 10:40 am.
