Horton peak sits on the western perimeter of the White Cloud Mountain range and provides one of the most spectacular views to the east face of the Sawtooth Mountains available. The 9,986-foot peak towers 3,400 feet above Sawtooth Valley, and when you peer west the views extend over the valley floor to the lofty crest of the serrated Sawtooths. One of the better vistas is to the glaciated canyons emptying into the three big lakes on the Sawtooth’s perimeter — Alturas, Pettit and Yellow Belly.
