Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore has been rated highly in Backpacker magazine as one of the best places to escape to in the Upper Peninsula. Our journey will begin with a sunset cruise aboard Miss Superior, providing gorgeous vistas of sandstone cliffs that tower 50 to 200 feet above the water. Then we’ll head to the Beaver Basin and spend a couple of days canoeing and hiking around the inland lake and exploring the shores of Lake Superior. We’ll camp in backcountry sites in the peaceful wilderness and practice “leave no trace” principles. Our adventure will culminate with an overnight canoe-camping trip on the Manistique River. On the way home, we’ll board an underground train for a mine tour in Iron Mountain and see expert miners in action. You provide a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, hiking boots and backpack and we’ll provide the rest. (Riveredge has a limited number of backpacks and sleeping pads available for those who sign up first.) Space is limited, so sign up early for this exciting adventure!
