Trip Reports

June 13, Betsie River, County Line to Homestead

Jocelyn Trepte  | Published on 6/13/2021

Sara: "Very turny twisty, with several tight overhanging branches & trees since no livery clears this section."

Put-in at Benzie County Line was not as muddy as usual

Ron, Tracie, and Jackie at the lunch stop -- some took boats out, other decided to eat in their boats

Slow and wide near the takeout

Homestead takeout adds only 45 minutes and avoids the risky drive down to Fred's Landing

Dinner at the Platte River Inn afterwards --
