Ever since learning of the North Country Trail over a decade ago, I've thought of hiking it. Or parts of it. The closest it passes to me is through Hillsdale, Michigan. Early one Saturday morning I headed out there and started walking.
I tracked down another segment of the trail and walked about 100 feet down it. It was pretty overgrown and since it had rained earlier in the day it was a bit wet so I turned around and headed back to the car.
