Smelter Mountain. Sounds appetizing, don’t it? True to its name, Smelter Mountain is covered with all sorts of industrial detritus, like power stations, uranium tailings, and radio and television towers. With all the man-made goodies around, it’s a strange place for a protected wildlife area. (The roads described here pass through the Bodo State Wildlife Area, a protected zone for deer and elk in the winter. Sounds great, until you realize that the only reason the land was set aside for wildlife is because it’s unlivable for humans.) The immediate environs are not the most striking and beautiful around, and some may find the straightforward climb positively boring, but there are plenty of locals who love and appreciate this route for its convenience, and for the nice views from the lonely summit. Trail Surface: 40% wide, graded dirt road and 60% slightly rougher dirt road.
