“A wooded trail following the Little Carp River.”— samh Haraldson
The Upper Midwestern United States isn't home to many vast swaths of wilderness so the Porkies are a real gem. This section is particularly deep into the middle of this zone, and about as deep as a runner can get. The woods, water, and wildlife found here are worthy of the work required to experience it.
There is plenty of quality camping, backcountry lakes, fishing, bird and wildlife options abound as you make your way along quality trail tread past some of the finest scenery the Midwest has to offer.
