LaBonte Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"Located 35 miles southwest of Douglas, in the Medicine Bow National Forest. A fun and especially beautiful day hike that follows a major creek drainage into a deep mountain canyon. The LaBonte drainage is a prime example of a creek that beginswest of the Laramie Range yet travels uninterrupted east through the mountains. This area contains a large proportion of contiguous Forest Service land. The hiker can freely explore adjacent creek drainages and surrounding hills. And exploration is what the LaBonte area is all about. La Bonte, by the way, was a French trader and trapper who frequented the region in the 1830s. Here he should have remained. The Ute Indians killed him in Utah in 1840."
