Hey y’all, Unagi here. I found a link to this forum on Twitter. I’m interested in light weight backpacking, thru hiking, and trail running. I’m planning to complete the River to River this year as a shakedown for a longer thru hike in 2022. Cheers

Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here. Have you hiked any of the R2R before?

Yeah! I haven’t completed any sections but have hiked a bit of it, mainly around Bald Knob, Cedar Lake, Panthers Den, Giant City areas

The Bald Knob to Pine Hills section is great. Hutchins Creek is amazing!

We're considering a trip to Red Cedar trail based on Shawn's review. I saw water crossing...will that be difficult to navigate for beginners?

Nah, it is very easy! In fact, I try to recommend people go there to prepare themselves for a more backcountry or thru-hike experience. :)
