Big Knob-Crow Lake Pathway
The Big Knob-Crow Lake Pathway caught my attention because I'm always looking for some kind of new climb in my otherwise vertically-challenged state. Located just west of Naubinway along Lake Michigan's north shore Big Knob was a bit disappointing from the vertical standpoint but beautiful nonetheless. I arrived late in the day so I would be racing a setting sun but I was still able to put a few miles on the snowshoes and visit both Big Knob and Crow Lake. It was a wonderful late-day hike...
