Caribou-Speckled Mountain Wilderness

Trails: 25 miles of maintained hiking trails
Description: Repeatedly logged up until the 1960s where harvesting took place in the Cold, Willard, Great, Miles, Mud, Morrison, and Little Lady drainages. There was an active fire tower on the summit of Speckled Mountain until the mid 1960s; it was removed in 1986 before the area was designated Wilderness
Mt. Caribou got its name after two brothers shot the last caribou in the region there in 1854. Their names are carved on the top of the mountain.
