This area was one of the hardest-hit areas in the major fires of 2012. except for a few small pockets, all trees were destroyed. Before the fires, I would have said the hike through Ponderosa WMA out to Crown Butte was the most epic hike/climb in Nebraska. Until the state has the means to clean up the Ponderosa WMA post-fire hazards, people should avoid this area
