Flat Tops Wilderness Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Flat Tops Wilderness is a several-hundred-square-mile high plateau formed by glaciers 10,000 years ago. The area is covered with glacial vents and deep valleys, holding dozens of small lakes, beaver ponds, small streams, and rivers.

The hardy angler can hike to fifty lakes and small streams holding brookies, rainbows, browns, cutthroat, and even some lake trout. These productive waters have produced 30-pound lake trout and 5-pound brookies and cutthroat, although these fish are rare occurrences.

Key Species: Brook trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, lake trout."
