I've hiked the loop at MRT, doing it again this spring.

I've also hiked a two day "loop" near the Devil's soupbowl.

Some areas are less desirable.

If you are looking for a week, why not try out Pictured Rocks? you can park in Munising and get transportation to the other end of the trail, water is available at most sites, great views and other options off trail.

How old is your kid?

Isle Royale is awesome for a week long hike.

The Manitous are cool to check out too if you haven't been there. South is much visited, and shorter distances between spots to check out. North is massive in comparison, with multi-mile legs between sites and you probably will run into less than 2 other people per day. Just depends what you're after.

If you want an "experience" for your boy that will teach him about deep snow, snowshoeing, getting away while not going far, winter camping, hard work, and responsibility, we still have a lot of cherry trees to prune. You're welcome to come prune, walk 20 feet, prune, walk 20 feet, repeat x ∞, then camp at night and repeat the next day. No charge for parking either!

Sidetrack, is before the snow melts the best time to prune apples too?
