Trip Reports

Oct 22 - Pine, Dobson to Low Bridge

 | Published on 10/22/2015

Great weather & lots of riffles on my favorite paddle on the Pine from Dobson Bridge to Low Bridge with Jack (Grayling), John (Crystal Lake) & Kurt (Cadillac). It was mid 40s at the put-in, mid 50s at the take-out but warm in the sun. No portaqes, though we were prepared since late season. I had a chance to visit with 2 USFS rangers from Manistee NF at Peterson Bridge, who care for the Pine River corridor & Manistee River Trail. Fall colors were better on the drive there but still plenty of reds, oranges & golds. Trip report & photos by Sara Cockrell
