I'm taking you back to the Ocqueoc area today. There are 6 miles of trails there, maintained by the Michigan DNR. Ester has a bum knee and can't really hike, but she let me take Whitey and do a 3-mile loop while she read a book.
For part of the loop, we were right along the Ocqueoc River, below the falls. It was a placid stream in this stretch.
It was interesting to me how much it was like the forests near here. We did pass a number of areas where the vegetation was quite different on our trip, but not on this trail. For sure along the coast where there is that limestone base.
I didn't get to sample the trails along Lake Huron, but we learned there are over 4 miles at Hoeft State Park, and another 6 at the Herman Vogler Conservation Area along the Trout River. There is a possibility for a couple of days of hiking right in this area.
And, all beautiful at this time of year.
