Increasingly though thereare sharpdifferencesof opinionin
how the woodsshould be managed. Now at least, there is
more recognition that the woodsbelong to all of us, and we
need to take care to protect the interests of al1.
The mills,the loggersandthegovernment agenciesthat
control the logging of public lands need to have a
continuing dialog so each can express their input on how to
solve the differences that exist which result in the
mismanagement of OUR forests. Logging standards need to
be set high enough to protect the interests of all other
groups, but not so high as to be a further burden to loggers.
Common sense legislation can go a long way to accomplish
this.
ATV and snowmobileusers should exercise more
restraint on how they use the trails, concerning littering,
excessivenoisethatfrightensthewildlife,and off-trail
travel that destroys nests, burrows, plant life, etc. in some
cases.
breaks and incentives based on how they leave the tracts
theyhavelogged. This should not be paidsolely by thetax
paying public,but at least in part by thepaper industrywho
now buy their wood cheaply and shift the work and expense
to the loggers.
1n some cases, the state or federal governments build and
maintain recreational trails, sites, and facilities in tracts after
they have been logged and hire contractors to do this work.
0ften the logger could do the work as the equipment needed
for the job is already on site. The extra dollars could be used
for restoration.
0f all the groups that use the woodsfor one purpose or
another,in my opinion the hikers have the least unfavorable

maple, and yellow birch. We had several steep up and down
crossings of small creeks and streams. We walked about 2.8
milesto the Presque Isle River viewing rapidsandwater falls
upstream. We crossed a dry riverbed and then crossed the
main channel of the river on a suspension bridge. After
crossing the river we had two choices. We could go up above
the river or take long series of boardwalks and stairs
upstream. There were no blue blazes so we ascendedto walk
above the river. As we walked on the higher bank we
realized the boardwalk and stairs came back up to the main
trail so we descendedand back-tracked to get a better view of

followedthe trail alongtheriver viewing Manabezhoand
Hanido Falls. With all the rain the falls were spectacular.
We walkedalongtheriverfor about .7 miles to the South
BoundaryRoad. This was about 5:40 p.m. CDT
This was the spot we were beginning on Saturday. We
100kedat the trail on the other side (south) of South Boundary
Road and the trail was overgrown with raspberry bushes and
the stairs down to the river endedon a steep slope.
