  • A semi-challenging and informative hike in a beautiful setting. The trail is well-marked and there are informational signs that tell the history of the 1910 forest fire aka The Big Burn.  more »
  • The trail is about 2 miles each way. Very well marked. Everyone was attacked by yellow jackets about a quarter mile in, but that could have been a quirk. The mine itself is not much to look at.  more »
  • The first mile is beautiful, not too difficult, and not scary. I took my almost 5-year-old daughter with and the closer we got to the top the more I was freaking out about holding on to her so she did...  more »

  • Loved this trail!! So extraordinary beautiful, especially during the winter. Definitely wear snow boots because the snow gets a bit high. The trail is almost 2 miles back and forth, so 4 miles total. It is not that hard, totally doable.
  • The Pulaski Tunnel Trail is easy to get to and the signage is spectacular. There are markers about every 1/4 mile so one can tell where he or she is and signs at every historical spot along the trail to explain what happened during the great wildfires of 1910. If you are in good shape, expect the trail to take a couple of hours. The hike is 4 miles and there is about an 800 foot elevation gain on the way to the tunnel.
  • This is a great hike that starts in the lush woods, running along the West Fork of the Placer Creek. After about a mile you do come out of the trees and are in the sunshine, so make it a morning hike on a hot day. The signage along the trail and at the top provide detailed historical information that is very interesting to read. There are mile markers every 1/4 mile to keep you encouraged!
  • This trail is right outside of Wallace and is not only beautiful but historical. Hike it and learn about the fire and see the cave that saved many
  • Great hike to test your hill climb skills. You gain nearly 2,000 feet in altitude!
