Caribou Basin and Sawtooth Ridge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Talk to any old-timer about the Trinity Alps, and you’re sure to hear about a pack trip to Caribou Basin in the “good ol’ days,” a story likely to include prodigious numbers of trout as long as your arm, at least one marauding bear, a pack mule that nearly fell off the almost vertical trail over Caribou Mountain, and a late season snowfall with 100-mile-per-hour winds. Unfortunately, Caribou Basin is not the same pristine wilderness the old-timer remembers, but the scenery is still utterly fantastic. The deep blue lakes continue to picturesquely reflect untouched cliffs and peaks; the trout are still there but smaller these days; and the views from Sawtooth Ridge are still superlative."
