Legendary forest fires of 1910 changed lives for a generation in the Inland Northwest. But the changes to the landscape will endure for centuries, as this hike so vividly displays. Walk up a drainage under thick cedars and hemlocks that were already old when they survived the “Great Blow-up.” Climb to quaint little lakes nestled in the rock of the Bitterroot Divide. Consider options to bag a peak or cruise the scenic ridge on the Stateline National Recreation Trail along the Montana-Idaho border. Then take the moderate way out and backtrack to the trailhead, or complete the loop with a more difficult stream-crossing odyssey down a drainage that had been devoured by the holocaust. This final leg reveals how an uncommon diversity has risen from the ashes, and why this area deserves protection as the Great Burn Wilderness.
