Stough Lakes Basin in the PoPo Agie Wilderness


The Shoshone National Forest encompasses all or parts of five designated wilderness areas and three mountain ranges. These areas are wild and untamed. Day hikers, backpackers, horsepackers, anglers, photographers, and others can enjoy pristine lakes, tumbling waterfalls, slopes awash in wildflowers,  glacier-carved valleys, and a plethora of wildlife. The North Absaroka (pronounced ab-ZORE-kuh) Wilderness and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness can be found in the northern part of the Shoshone National Forest, while the Popo Agie (pronounced puh-POE-zhuh), the Fitzpatrick, and the Washakie (pronounced WA-shu-kee) Wilderness areas are situated in the southern portion.
