Hero: Danskin Lookout
small-sr Icon
Danskin Lookout offers spectacular views from the high desert to the south, with hundreds of rock outcroppings along the way, some even as tall as 75 feet. As you get closer to the peak, there are canyon views that the South Fork Boise River has cut in the east. The Danskin Mountains are located in the extreme southwestern portion of the Boise Mountains; therefore, this area usually has its snowmelt first. There are several open dispersed campsites along this trail. The trail is gated before arriving at the peak, and there is a .31 mile hike to the summit and lookout. The lookout offers views of the Owyhee Mountains in the southwest and the taller peaks of the Boise Range, including Two Point Mountain and Trinity Mountain.
