Our trip backpacking in the Indian Peaks Wilderness section of Buchanan Pass Trail was perfect in every way. We got plenty of exercise, were close to a water source, had amazing views of the mountains and sky from our meadow campsite, saw the Milky Way, and encountered wildlife.
Our camping trip to Spruce Knob was enjoyable. There are many excellent camping spots next to the water source of Seneca Creek, making it an ideal destination for backpacking.
The Dolly Sods North loop is excellent both for a day hike or for a backpacking trip. The beauty of the sweeping scenery and boulderfield are memorable.
Our first backpacking trip was a success and we fell in love with the sweeping landscapes and mixed forests of Dolly Sods Wilderness. With it’s many camp spots next to rivers and beautiful variety of nature, this southern half of Dolly Sods Wilderness is a perfect place to go backpacking.
