Central Caribou Lakes Loop (Backpacking) Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lakes, lakes, and more lakes await you in the Caribou Wilderness—and the good news is that most of them are well suited for camping, swimming, and angling. The terrain here is relatively flat, making this trip a good choice for backpackers of all ages and conditions. (Although, with few significant landmarks, getting lost away from the trail is quite possible.) Dramatic peaks are lacking here, but the part of the route that climbs to Rim and Cypress lakes provides scenic views from the edge of a prominent escarpment."
