"Following one of the most popular trails in the Wind Rivers, this trip leads through extensive forests, past meadows rich with wildflowers, and beyond ice-polished domes to timberline lakes near the foot of the lofty crest of the range.
This trail offers the easiest and fastest means to access the alpine regions of the Bridger Wilderness, including incomparable Titcomb Basin, and so the route is heavily used by climbers, backpackers, and anglers who enjoy majestic alpine scenery at its finest." Read more
"After passing through largely uninspiring timberline terrain to Eklund Lake, the Pole Creek Trail then traverses a corrugated, glacier-carved landscape as it descends into the valley of Pole Creek, a major drainage in the central Wind Rivers.
There are numerous destinations in the Pole Creek environs that make convenient base camps, including Cook Lakes, Wall Lake, Bald Mountain Basin, and Chain Lakes. All these waters, including Pole Creek, offer good fishing for a variety of trout species, as well as an abundance of fine camping areas. In this area you will find much to keep you busy, including a variety of cross-country excursions to high passes, remote lake basins, and Class 2 scrambles to the surrounding lofty peaks." Read more
