A rugged, five-day or longer backpacking trip into high country lakes surrounded by majestic peaks. The hike begins approximately 12 miles northwest of Lander and offers astonishing vistas of panoramic peaks and alpine lake settings. Rumors indicate Deep Creek Lakes may contain Golden Trout. This is now a bustling trailhead. The Middle Fork trail not only serves as a gracious introduction to the Wind Rivers, but it forms the major access route into the entire Popo Agie Wilderness. A map posted on the trailhead sign shows a system of 28 different trails, with this one trailhead as the gateway to all. Bear in mind that the hike to Popo Agie Falls, the first mile of the trail, is the goal of over half the people using the trail.
