Michigan Overland Manistee National Forest Trip

We're taking a trip through Manistee National Forest in early July. Weather should be good enough that all we have to worry about is dust and bugs. Additional details are to follow including GPX files. We are limiting the number of rigs to 12 even though we aren't anticipating this many. This event is cross-posted with our Facebook group as well.

Rally Point Notes:

Alright everyone, here's the plan for next weekend:

Early meetup at 2ish is in White Cloud, MI at the Wesco (304 S Charles St). The planned route is about 30 miles from Wesco to Baldwin but keeps us close to 37 in case we need to jump on to meetup with anyone else at 4.

Late meetup at 4ish is at the Shell station in Baldwin (1210 Michigan Ave). From Baldwin, it's a short distance to the first camp site on the Manistee river. Mostly a road drive with a short trail run. As long as we can get back to the campsite we should be good as far as daylight. If not, we'll have to adjust fire and find a different spot.

Second day runs us from the first camp site to camp site 2. Some of the selected route I have been on (but don't remember) and some I haven't. Depending on time I built in some shorter more direct routes to camp site 2 if we need to use them.

From camp site 2 on Sunday we can run more trails up to Mesick and determine from there whether we call it or do a short run to get back to 115.
