Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Maps
out into the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area, whether to
fish in a high alpine lake or just on a scenic hike, is highly
advised to take along a good map. The Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness
Area is a huge place. Much off it is also very open, allowing
for both easy off-trail hikes as well as making it easier
to get lost. Moreover, the lakes in the Absaroka-Beartooth
Wilderness, due to its high alpine environment, have variable
fishing quality - ranging from superb to non-existent. Thus,
it pays to make sure where you're going and that the lake
you're going to actually has fish in it.
