Not many people use this section of the Betsie; once we were there on July 4, and no-one else was around. This outing covers the most scenic and undeveloped stretch of the Betsie. It's our favorite section of the river because the water is so clear, and the stream is shallow and twisty. The paddling itself is not difficult, since the current is not fast, so adventurous beginners would enjoy the trip.
There may be obstacles in the way, like downed trees that will require climbing over or shimmying under. We may have portages, and some lumberjack work to do.
Don't forget to pack a lunch, since we'll stop for a break about halfway through the trip. Also take something to sit on at lunchtime (not your PFD). Bring a pruning saw if you have one.
