BWCA - Kekekabic Trail
Matt and I decided as we left Monday morning that we would hike down to Becoosin or Benenzie Lake. We figure it was around 12 miles but would give us a short day out Tuesday morning (and we both had long drives home). You hike about 5 miles (maybe 6) before reaching Thomas Lake - and wet feet. We had a water crossing
As I mentioned, we were headed for Becoosin or Benenzie. Let me give a note of caution for all! We decided to try camping Benenzie because we had not been on that lake before. So when we got down to the first junction with the Becoosin Loop, we headed for Benenzie. BIG MISTAKE. The trail is an absolute mess - almost impassable in several places. The campsites are terrible. Do not even consider trying to use one. We pushed through to the campsite we were familiar with on Becoosin. Our Third night was pretty low key. We were both beat. My knee was in tough shape and I know Matt was dealing with a little knee touble himself as well as terrible blistering on both feet. We were in bed I believe by 9:00 pm. But I'll tell ya, I slept good that night..... and felt fortunate to be able to be out there.
