I've been invited to hike this trail (40ish miles) in the UP of Michigan in late June. It has been on my list of places to hike. I understand that it is a very easy trail and VERY scenic. I think I would take my good camera equip with me.
Is this a good time of year for this trail?
Is late June prime bug season?
Is the soil sandy at the designated campsites to the point that I might have trouble with tent stakes (Lunar Solo = stakes under tension)?
