This is a fun hike. Because it ends far from where it
starts it feels like going on a long journey. Sort of like
hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.
You will visit a plentitude of
lakes on your walk through the woods.
This is the flowery side of
Caribou Wilderness; problem is the flowers peak in
July---along with the mosquitos.
October is bug-free with
crisp air. Camp overnight in October and expect a
long, cold night ... and a multitude of stars in the inky
black void. The air is very clear here, on cloudless
nights. A warm campfire may be just the thing.
If you'd like to hike 397
miles without ever going over the same ground twice,
our affiliate has the Pacific Crest Trail maps you need.
