Guided Snowshoeing Event
New Talks Coming in 2022!
There’s a lot of interest in talks about our National Scenic Trail System and the famous Camino de Santiago in Spain. Watch this space as I begin scheduling talks on these two topics for 2022!
Time: Approximately April through November
Location: Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, Ohio and Minnesota (North Country Trail) and the Continental Divide Trail (New Mexico)
Follow along as Melanie continues to pursue her goal of hiking all 11 National Scenic Trails. Check out her progress by reading her trail journals and the travel articles she writes about her treks. Or maybe see if you can catch her on the trail!
Here is my 2022 plan:
North Country Trail. Finish the Michigan section of the NCT by hiking south of Grand Rapids into Ohio. Possibly also hike in Minnesota, heading westbound from Ely. Goal: Roughly 1,600 miles (2,575 km).
Continental Divide Trail: Start the Continental Divide by hiking from the southern terminus in New Mexico to somewhere in the Albuquerque region. Goal: About 400 miles (644 km).
