Caribou Wilderness Area Trail

Caribou Wilderness Area Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Fall is the best time of year for hardy souls to make those final backpacking trips before the blanket of winter tucks everything up in white—and the Caribou Wilderness Area on the backside of Lassen Volcanic National Park is probably my most-favorite camping destination with the girls. Backpackers might need to get out their silk sleeping-bag liners for a bit of extra warmth, but the prospect of a few last weekends in the woods is alive and well. You can sense it in the valley: people who love to sleep with the windows open in Redding are getting up in the middle of the night to get out an extra comforter; condensation covers car windows. And in the mountains? Frost has already settled into some valleys. You can see your breath as you light the stove for that must-have cup of coffee after slipping from your cocoon of bag and tent."
