Description

Trail 7 (Caribou Ridge NRT) links the campground to the main Beauty Bay Loop.

The upper section is mostly smooth singletrack with some rocks and roots mixed in. Once you reach the tight right-hand switchback (approximately 1/2 way down to campground) the trail gets a little rougher and there are some sections with exposure. Expect to see narrow trail, lots of rocks, and some steep drop-offs to the side.

Don't miss the scenic lake overlook partway down!

Be aware of other trail users as this is a popular multi-use trail.
