    Thanks!

    I should have included RRG in our considered list. I'm very familiar with RRG. We make look for something more in-between and less crowded.

    Thanks everybody for the confirmation. Now, I just have to decide upon what length dog bone to carry. Currently only carry about 12-18" one (what I hang my camp shoes with).

    I pretty sure that section has been re-routed from what's on the maps. Plus the park rangers had little to no knowledge of the trail (which we found shocking at the time).

    That section of Rough Trl is, uh, rough uphill. You could camp at Hanson's Point. But, I think, you'll have pack water from where Sheltowee comes in or, hike past HP & back.
