Thought I would start a thread to see about the interest. I will be heading up to the Manistee Nat Forest to do some backpacking. As far as details go, I am still deciding if I am just hiking some of the Manistee River trail or part of the NCT. Nothing crazy on the distances though. If we have enough people interested, we could do a section with idea of shuttling with cars. I know some have said that this weekend is out, but lets see what we can put together. I am admittedly not that familiar with this area, so if those have better options on the trail, I would love to hear them.
