Trails: Pine Ridge/Hemlock Grove/Fodderstack/Bob Bald/Fodderstack/North Fork/Camp 7/North Fork(red highlights are overnight spots).
The First Bob
The First Michigan Cranbrook Crew
DAY ONE On this trip I parked again at Warden's Field and strapped on my heavy North Face pack and headed up the Pine Ridge trail to the Fodderstack ridge trail where I walked over to the Hemlock Grove tentsite near Glenn Gap(above).
DAY THREE I leave the Bob and go down the Fodderstack to Cherry Log Gap and descended the North Fork where I camped at my usual place, Camp 7.
DAY FOUR I continued down the North Fork and headed out to home. But before then I meet the Michigan Cranbrook School crew at the North Fork footbridge for the first time, a lively bunch of high schools kids and their leaders on their 35th annual 10 day backpacking trip into the Citico/Slickrock wilderness.
