I am planning a through hike of the Tecumseh Trail for June 21st – 23rd. Depending on the number of attendees, logistics, and accommodations things may change slightly. I have hiked the entire trail, but never as one continuous hike. That is the goal. I expect it to be a serious challenge. It will be hot, humid, buggy, ect… everyone will need to be self-sufficient and everyone hikes at their own risk. Weather will not cancel the event, so plan accordingly.
Current plans are as follows…
Who: Anyone equipped and capable to travel 42 miles on foot in 3 days.
What: Point to Point through hike. (North to South)
When: June 21 – 23 (might stage cars the 20th and camp in MMSF)
Where: MMSF headquarters @ 7am 6/21/19
Why: The Challenge
How: Preferably as safe as possible
Day 1: Trailhead to Fox Den Shelter. This will be close to 15 miles.
Day 2: Fox Den to Yellow wood Lake. This will be close to 17 miles.
Day 3: Yellowwood Lake to the Crooked Creek Parking. About 9 miles
Day 3+: There is an option for another 4 miles to get to the southern end of the trail (2 miles each way) from the parking area.
Standard Leave no Trace practice is expected. There will be a cost for the campsite(s) at Yellowwood Lake. Sites are cheap and multiple people can be on each site. Current plan is to stage vehicles as the southern terminus.
Hope to see you there.
