Pictured Rocks Backpacking

 
 

Tuesday, July 30th through Friday, August 2nd

Occurs during Nicolet Session III


4 days - optional trip - open to ages 13+




Nestled against the southern shore of Lake Superior, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore includes immense sand dunes, twelve miles of beautiful white sand beach, and the monumental wave-carved and mineral-stained cliffs that give the area its name.  Spend four days backpacking and exploring each of these natural wonders, plus tour the historic Au Sable lighthouse and other remnants of the park’s tumultuous history.  A week well spent with great friends, this intermediate adventure is perfect preparation for the longer Isle Royale Backpacking trip.
