Twelve Toughest Trails

Twelve trails that'll chew you up, spit you out, and have you begging for more.

by: Mike Lanza, Dennis Lewon, Rich Lovett, Jim Gorman, Gary Lantz and Ted Stedman


California

Caribou Scramble

The fortunate few who reach the Caribou Lakes basin in northern California's Trinity Alps can be divided into two camps: Those who brave the Caribou Scramble to get there, and those who use easier access routes.

Intrepid hikers who tackle the shadeless, waterless, merciless Scramble are easy to recognize. They straggle into the granite-walled paradise like battle-weary soldiers, nursing leg cramps and basking in the unmistakable glow of victory. They've just breached the jagged spine of Sawtooth Ridge and witnessed the glorious view of Caribou, Emerald, and Sapphire Lakes spread at their feet like jewels in a necklace strung across imposing gray peaks.

Caribou Scramble is located deep in the heart of the Trinity Alps, an isolated range that rakes the sky and delivers scenery and steeps to match. The Scramble itself is only 2 miles long, snaking up through manzanita in 100 heartbreaking switchbacks, give or take a few. Don't give up, though, because to the victor go the spoils.

Where: The Caribou Scramble is located in northern California's Trinity Alps, 30 miles northwest of Trinity Center via CA 3 and Coffee Creek Road.

Route: Best for solitude and scenery is a 26-mile loop beginning at Big Flat trailhead and linking Tri-Forest, Caribou Scramble, and Old Caribou Trails.

Grunt factor: 4. The Caribou Scramble climbs 2,300 feet, yet feels like 10 times that. Elevation gain/loss for the entire route is 13,000 feet.

The payoff: You enter the Caribou Lakes basin through its stunning backdoor. Plus you earn bragging rights; even a local ranger had to admit, "I've never gone up the Caribou Scramble. It's bad enough going down."

More information: The Trinity Alps: A Hiking and Backpacking Guide, by Luther Linkhart and Michael White (1994; Wilderness Press; 800-443-7227; www.wildernesspress.com; $15.95).

Diamonds or Amore Diamonds, to name a few. For those companies providing branded diamonds, the suggestion is that one gemstone is of a better quality than another, and that a company stands behind the product it sells and meets high quality standards. Undoubtedly, the ultimate goal of branding is that consumers think of diamond brands as they do name brand cleaning supplies. The perception that a brand name adds value to a diamond no longer exists. What is the importance of branding to the buyer who wants an antique ring setting with a center gemstone? Thriving for brand names leads to more differing labs and different certificates, making consumers more confused. These jewelers either had a core clientele base that relies on their expertise or perhaps the jeweler has been around forever and is trusted in the community. There now exist, online jewelers

anyone every heard of a little place called Montana?

Just got back from the Slickrock Wilderness in NC. I'll agree with everything said in this article. The Slickrock Creek Trail was tougher than anything I've ever seen before. Kicked my butt. The views from the Hangover (east of Stratton Bald) and the camping there were well worth it though. Best night I've ever had above 5000'. Felt like I was in a travel brochure.

Slide Mountain at 4190' is the highest of the Catskill Peaks, but also one of the easiest. The trail does not have the ledges that are prevalent on the Devil's Path.
It is a very enjoyable hike thru the forest, to a nice open summit.
