Virtual jog to Miners Castle – Scenic upper peninsula hiking trail run

Virtual jog to Miners Castle – Scenic upper peninsula hiking trail run | Video Blog


4.7 mile jog-slash-hike through Lake Superior cliffside woods. Sand Point Marsh Trail to North Country Trail in Munising, Michigan to reach Miners Castle rock formation. First time using a head-mounted GoPro, a little blur/frame skip from the post-production “anti-shake” but much smoother than the original motion-sickness-inducing vibration. Tripped over a root at mile four, so be alert treadmill viewers. GoPro equipment graciously provided by Michael Eldridge of – check him out for your occupational, tactical or lifestyle needs.
