Backpack to Blind Lake

15 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Crooked Lake Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Chris Young

Quiet, peaceful backpacking in Southeastern Michigan; a great place for beginners. 

Finding a quiet, relatively secluded place to backpack can be difficult in Southeastern Michigan. However, backpacking at Blind Lake in the Pinckney State Park is a fantastic option for those searching. Blind Lake is accessible by a 7 mile hike in from Silver Lake, but can be approached from several different routes using the Potawatomi and Waterloo Trails. The Blind Lake rustic campground provides a fire pit and picnic table for each site as well as a pit toilet, trash barrel, and water pump for added convenience.
