Please join the PWC on a hike Sunday, August 17 on our segment 30: We

Meet at the western end of the Copper Country Mall parking lot at noon

See you on the trail!
Hike to be lead by, Dan Schneider
President, Peter Wolfe Chapter NCTA.
Some PWC Trail issues of Note:
There are sections of our trail that have been marked
for logging and the trees that are marked to be cut have been painted
with the exact same blue color as the NCT Blue Blazes!! (usually several
stripes per tree) So be very careful to look for the 2 inch by 6
inch vertical paint or plastic blazes! We have done our best to make the
trail obvious when we have found these tree markings this spring, but
there may be some places we have not discovered yet.
If you plan on driving to the
Falls Trailhead for a hike into Tibbets Falls, please note: The Tibbets
Falls bridge on the Baraga Plains Rd is "closed" due to road
reconstruction just south of the bridge, you will have to come to the
trailhead from the North until about the END of AUGUST as per the County Road

Volunteer Adventure a
About a half a mile of high-quality trail
was built on Bill Lynch's property southeast of Herman in Baraga
County. It's a key link in an east-west route to connect existing
trail at Canyon Falls Rest Area and NCT Hikers Club Chapter trail at
Long Lake outlet.
We had a beautiful campsite on Little Spruce Lake, and our chef John
Forslin had all of our meals ready for us before we left each day and
when we got back. John stayed in camp and made trips to town for
food and water, and was visited in camp one day by a bull moose!
More trail needs to be built, and we'll use the campsite for short
overnight work trips or another VA.

near Mass City.
Holman wins NCTA Outstanding Private Landowner of the Year Award for
Scott received this award for exemplary
cooperation with our chapter to provide a new and critical link in the
NCT in Baraga County. He not only allowed the trail to cross his
land, but cut some trees on his land to help supply needed decking and
stringers for a 156-ft. bridge. More details are in the
July-Sept. 2013 North Star.
