In 2017, the Lion Fire burned a large chunk of the Golden Trout Wilderness, including the usual approach to Coyote Peaks and Angora Mountain via Deep Creek. The forest is burned from about 6,000’ to about 9,500’ on the way to Coyote Peaks. The burn reaches almost to the summit of Angora Mountain. As of June 2018, the area was incredibly ugly, but travel wasn’t too difficult. If dead trees fall, and the USFS doesn’t remove them, travel could get very difficult.
