    Meet at the trailhead at 10am
    midway between Camp Sherwood Forest and Camp Derricotte. (see .pdf map below)

    I thought we'd have a hang up north so it's closer for our NoMo friends.

    We'll backpack the Cuivre River Trail.

    CUIVRE RIVER TRAIL
    Length: 11.25 Miles
    Hiking Time: 11 hours, 15 minutes
    This trail is divided into the north and south loops. The north loop consists of a portion of the formerly named Big Sugar Creek Trail that was open to horseback riding. This section has been renamed, but is still open for equestrian use. This loop traverses much of the Big Sugar Creek Wild Area, where you will encounter Sugar Bluff, bottomland forests and a large wet weather spring.
    The south loop follows Frenchmanís Bluff for several miles, offering great views of the Cuivre River valley. The trail heads back into the Big Sugar Creek valley, eventually leading you back to your starting point. Keep an eye out for evidence of the Civilian Conservation Corps, several examples of its stone work exist along the trail as well as the quarries where stone was collected.
    White connectors 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 offer more than four miles of additional trail. With these, the entire system offers 15.5 miles of multi-use trail.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Disco, great idea. I am in for this one for sure. Putting on the calender right now.

    And this time I plan to get my pack down from that ridiculous 53 lbs I took on the last trip.

    Oh and I am really liking the new name

    I'll have to find a disco ball keychain to hang off my ridgeline at night!

    I'll have to check the calender but I like that it's a completely new place for me.
    Enjoy your weekend folks!

    Pyro and I can make it; count us in. I'm thinking Disco is planning the Taum Sauk section for the next one so it's in the early spring.

    A friend from my past once said "always have something on your calender to look forward to"; now I do.

    Digitizer, the way you were moving I would never have guessed your pack was as heavy as it was! I have a hard time going like that when I'm only carrying a 1/5th of that! Enjoyed playing with the stove more last night and was checking out your videos. The one on your collection convinced me you have a problem but I'm willing to call you my friend anyway!
