What can you tell me about the Lake Ashtabula section of the NCT. I plan to hike it in July of this year but I am unsure what to expect. Will it be mostly quiet woods or noisy boaters near the lake or what? I am doing this backpack of 40 miles or so along Lake Ashtabula in memory of my grandmother who grew up in Valley City, ND and died this past Jan. I have looked at the links provided in your website but other then that, I am pretty clueless. I am a very experienced backpacker and usually backpack in remote locations. My last trip was the Nankoweap Trail in the Grand Canyon. I want to know if others would enjoy this trip in the MN Rovers club or whether I should just do this section on my own. –Cheryl Batson
