WILDLIFE VIEWING

Burnt Hollow

Burnt Hollow consists of more than 18,000 acres of public land in sagebrush country with dramatic geologic formations and a diversity of wildlife species. This primitive non-motorized recreation area offers hunting, backpacking, hiking, backcountry camping, and horseback riding. Trails are not marked, but several miles of old roads (especially near the south parking lot) provide a network for riding or hiking.

You may encounter cattle grazing within the recreation area. Several stock water ponds and small reservoirs are located within the unit, but potable water is not provided.

Visitors should come prepared with a map and compass or GPS unit. There are no visitor facilities within the unit.

If you venture into the recreation area, you may notice smoke from coal seam fires. These fires burn mostly underground, but occasionally come to the surface. Please use extreme caution if you are approaching the burning area.
