Upcoming Caribou Lake Trip March 20, 2021

Plan on meeting at Just-a-store (Corner of Chena Pump and Chena Ridge Rd) and be ready to depart at 7:30am. We will drive to Cantwell which is a 2.5 hour drive, then turn onto the Denali Hwy and drive about 5 miles. The state stops plowing the road at this point, and there is a large area to park. The ride into the lake is about 15 miles and we will cross the Jack River a number of time times. The trail should already be broken in, but several of us will have mountain machines if it is not. The lake is located in a broad valley surround by mountains. The scenery is outstanding and the fishing is excellent, if you bring your pole and ice auger. The snow is deep this year so it is not recommended for short track machine, unless the track has deep paddles. This is considered an intermediate skill level ride. Some folks are spending Friday and/or Saturday night down in the Cantwell area. For those folks, plan on meeting at the trail head at 10:30 am. Ride leader Dan Cryer
