What is best for you may not be best for someone else. A few Cairn Stone travelers have successfully used their insurance after a car accident or a family emergency meant they could not travel with us.

Traditionally the mid-season Test Hike is at Devil's Lake Wisconsin. It is a very beautiful and challenging course. It is often the wake up call for those not training equal to their goals.
Since 2004 the second and final TEST HIKE has taken place at Manistee River Valley near Cadillac, MI. It is a beautiful destination hike and a proven test bed.
