I will be traveling to Land O Lakes Wisconsin at the end of June, and am looking for any recommendations for hikes in Michigan's UP region or Northern Wisconsin around Ottawa National Forest, Sylvania, Sturgeon Gorge Wilderness, or McCormick Wilderness areas. Anyone got favorite trails in this area, especially ones that have waterfalls or wildflowers?
Would also like to do a short backpacking trip in the Trap Hills on the North Country Trail, and looking for any advice on what section of the trail to do. I picked up the NCT association maps, but there are so many different options. Any awesome places to hang that I shouldn't miss?
Also, are the mosquitoes really as bad as everyone says?
