Hopefully I'll have a trip report, otherwise PM me on the 25th and I can tell you what I learned.
    Thanks, I'll look into the Ice Age Trail and Copper Falls as well. And will look for your trip reports. Have fun!

    +1 on ticks
    This is probably the worst year for ticks I can remember. We were just up in the Crivitz area and we were having to flick them off gear and people all weekend. I sprayed clothes down with permethrin and still found one...well...in a private area

    Ugh! Had a few ticks this year, but not that bad. OK off to get permethrin...

    Great- I see that northern trailhead on my map, so will check that out. Were the trails marked?
    None of the trails are marked, and some areas are trail less, minor bushwhacking though nothing horrible.
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    Thanks for all the great info and warnings about ticks and mosquitoes. WOW you all weren't kidding- they were horrific. But that didn't stop us from having a fantastic trip. We took the suggestion to cover up and wore long pants and long shirts with headnets and also had bug shirts, which worked really well.

    Ended up doing dayhikes in Sylvania and the Trap Hills so I could spend more time with my parents. Next year I'm going back with more time and bringing my hammock for sure. There were so many incredible places to go and just not enough time.

    Here and here are the trip reports on my blog.
