The Great Burn, also known as the Hoodoo Roadless Area, is a 275,000-acre Recommended Wilderness on the Montana/Idaho border. It’s known for its gorgeous high alpine environment, including jewel-like alpine lakes in deep basins, abundant wildflowers, and a large population of mountain goats that constantly surprise and delight hikers.
