Burch Mountain sits in the center of a rugged region riddled with old mines. Fortune seekers and strike-it-rich schemers once scampered and clambered all over this harsh landscape. Few found any lucre, and all that remains of their past presence are tailings and depressions, a few rusty relics, and wispy voices in the wind. From the lofty 7782-foot summit of this former lookout site, however, you can still strike it rich in visual rewards. Gaze out over impressive crags and spires, stark vertical walls, and deep, dark notches. Peer deep into the Pasayten Wilderness and out to the prominent peaks along its periphery.
