|Tahquamenon Falls along the NCT.|
The North Country Trail runs from New York to North Dakota. When completed it will span some 4,600 miles. Over 1,100 miles of the trail run through Michigan and well over half of that is on traditional backpacking type wilderness trail. Over the past several years I have hiked many portions of the trail in Michigan. In 2008 I joined Andy, Doug, and John to hike the segment of trail between Tahquamenon Falls Rivermouth Campground (near by anyway) and Grand Marais. We thought the trip would be just over 80 miles in length but it turned out to be somewhat longer than that. That was just one of the surprises this 5-day expedition would have in store for our group.
