Come for the whole weekend or pick your favorite pieces: pitch camp on Saturday in the Cook Forest Campground with your friends from Meetup; do an easy 3-ish mile hike in the late afternoon in Cook Forest State Park followed by dinner at our choice of the Bucktail Inn in Marienville, the Vowinkel Hotel (rhymes wth Bullwinkle) in Vowinkel, or the Farmer’s Inn near Sigel. The main attraction is on Sunday when we rise bright and early, shower, have breakfast nearby and traverse the State Park on the Baker/North Country Trails from North to South for an 8-ish mile hike. We will see the fire tower lookout (you can climb it) and maybe the wildlife center if it is open. Call Jim Ritchie at 412-576-0849 for more information and reservations.
