Food cache locations:

  • Longmire Wilderness Information Center at Longmire
  • Sunrise Visitor Center (When Sunrise Road is open)
  • White River Campground (use this when Sunrise Road is closed)
  • Mowich Lake (When Mowich Lake Road is open)

The Mowich Lake and Sunrise roads tend to open late in the season due to snow. These food cache locations won't be available before then. The roads usually close in October or earlier if snow hits. Don't plan on using Mowich Lake or Sunrise as trailheads or food cache locations early or late in the season.
