Yooper Tours: On Da North Country Trail – Section 6



A spontaneous hike across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on the North Country Trail. I couldn’t do it all in one time, so I broke the 550 miles into 9 sections.

Section 6 the Porcupine Mountains during peak fall color. Storms had ripped through in the week before and made a mess out of the trails. Bridges were washed out and there was standing water on about 50% of the trail, but the scenery was amazing as it always is in the Porkies.

    Your videos are awesome man. I was gonna do the AT I feel there will be more people on the AT then the NCT in the u.p. and thats the whole reason I wanna go on my hike is to be alone. Do some soul searching. Thanks for the videos man.

    Thanks for another awesome video and great camera work! I tried going across the U.P. back in June, but there was just way too much rain this year and the bugs were ridiculous. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get back up there later this fall. If you're looking for solitude, this is definitely a good trail to hike. The lake Superior shoreline is always awesome!

    Any reason why the trail is so poorly maintained in that area?  Don't they have a local NCT chapter?    If they want the NCT to become like the other marquis trails, they will have to get that taken care of.   Great vids!

    Really enjoying your videos man. I just moved to MI from Colorado and got the idea in my head to do a UP thru next summer. There is surprisingly not a lot of info out there on what to me seems like a really cool month-long hike. Yours are the only videos or even accounts of a UP thru/section hike I've been able to find!
