The 7-mile roundtrip hike is not easy, but it is definitely worth it.
If you cannot make the hike, experience the memorial, observation deck and entrance of the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park with this 360º video.
The hike ventures through the Weaver Mountains and down to the fatality site, which now serves as a memorial to the men.
Every 600 feet, a memorial plaque for each of the deceased hotshots has been installed into a rock and tells a little bit about their stories.
For more detailed information about about the memorial hike, see our guide.
