The 8,727-foot Swanholm Peak delivers quintessential vistas unmatched anywhere in the area. Fifty-mile views deliver the North Fork of the Boise River, the Trinity Mountains, virtually the entire western face of the Sawtooths and ridge after ridge of lofty peaks in the Boise National Forest. An unmanned fire lookout offers a platform to enjoy the vistas. This route is seldom traveled and seclusion will be your companion, although elk, deer and grouse are common.
