Manistee River Trail hike & paddle #1

 | Published on 9/27/2014

My first Manistee River Trail hike & paddle, leaves beginning to change & fast current on a beautiful sunny, warm fall day. 6 joined me for the 3.5 hr hike upstream to Woodpecker Creek, 4 more for the 2 hr paddle back to Red Bridge. Lots of others enjoying the trail & river, too. More socializing at dinner in Mesick afterwards. Trip report & photos by Sara Cockrell, GTHC & TAPC trip leader
