    Colleen D reviewed North Manitou Island Loop

    10 days ago

    Did this Labor Day weekend—not too bad w mosquitoes or ticks. It got a little crowded second night on west aide (we stayed at crescent site and people pitched a tent right near us!) easy enough trails, v well marked and not too strenuous. It was a really fun weekend trip—3 nights, 4 days.

    Lovely hike. It was a cool sept day when we did it but can imagine how on a hot day it could be a bit unbearable. Took us about 1:45 total—we were cutting it close to catch a ferry in Leland so didn’t have time to spend once we got to the lake! I don’t know if I would call this hard...lots of kids on the path. But lots of ups and downs and I can see how water would be an issue on hot days.

    So many different paths to choose from. We did south valley to high meadows to Turkey Ridge to south valley and laurel trail to start and finish at pine grove parking area. Our hike was slightly just about 11 (we went a little out of our way on one portion—we did north Orenda at beginning and got stuck on road to get back to south valley!) and took 5:11. Lots of tree coverage, not too hot. South valley was fairly empty—only ran into 1 person. Didn’t start seeing other people till we came to turkey ridge...granted we started early! Can’t wait to come back and try some other combos. The trails are well marked and there are maps at visitor center. Driving from DC be sure to look for exit 150b we got off too soon and had to back track on 95.

    Fun trail. Fairly easy to follow...we also had a very detailed blog post. We clocked 3.5 mile one way though so not sure if we got lost somewhere. The one way from boundary to pierce mill was about 1hr 45min.

    Fun hike. Started at visitor center and headed to chimney rock via park HQ. Stop at visitors center we did learn part of the loop was closed due to secret service so we did a 5 m loop back to the visitor center and then did a 1.4 out and back to the waterfalls. W snack stops it was about 4:15. The waterfalls were super crowded but first 2 hrs I think we saw a total of 5 people. Started hiking around8am.
