### In May of 1980, I hiked 65 miles of the IAT from WI13 west, through
the Chequamegon National Forest. It was very gently rolling, some short
little puds, one pretty little overlook (in 60+ miles), just enough black
flies to make 3x20 days better than the 4x15s I had planned. The mud was
minimal, the water good, the weather perfect for hiking (50-60*F). But be
prepared for closed in distances... I'm sure the forest has grown even
some thicker in 20 years...
