Event Information


This trip will be opened for sign up at 8:30pm on Tuesday 9/14/21 after the Kickoff Meeting!

What / Where / When:

Sylvania Wilderness is a protected wilderness area in the UP (Upper Peninsula of Michigan).  We will be canoeing, portaging, and enjoying peak fall colors throughout the area.  We will leave from Memorial Union on Friday afternoon and return to Memorial Union on Sunday afternoon / evening. 


No prior experience necessary. No prerequisites needed. This trip is an "immersive" experience for canoeing. By going on this trip you can receive both your swim test and lake rating!


The anticipated cost of this trip is $55 to cover the cost of food and gas.

Bring money for food on the road for Friday and Sunday.


We will have a pre-trip meeting TBD to go over packing and other trip logistics.

Shortly after you sign up, we will send out an email with important gear lists, and a form to collect more information from you.

Hoofers can provide you with all the essential gear to get you out there.

Feel free to email either of us with questions about the trip!
