Crandall Creek & Papoose Ridge Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Loop lovers sometimes look at a map of the northern Shoshone National Forest and salivate over what appears to be a nearly perfect loop that goes up and down above the steep canyons of Crandall and Timber Creeks, visits scenic Canoe Lake (see Trip 3, p. 31) and Bootjack Gap in Yellowstone National Park, and returns via the view-packed Papoose Ridge Trail. And while the scenery is indeed impressive and the wildlife abundant, for years “problem” grizzly bears were transported here from Yellowstone National Park. The bears here are both extremely common and unusually aggressive, which will make many hikers queasy about traveling here and lead to some sleepless nights."
