Hero: Twin Peaks Lookout
small-sr Icon
This trail to the highest active fire lookout in the Pacific Northwest is an exciting one to drive, and the views are well worth the frayed nerves! This trail is the second highest road in Idaho and tops over 10,000 feet in elevation. It is a very narrow single track with 11 hairpin turns. The summit hosts the highest occupied lookout established in 1913 and a helipad. Views are unobstructed to the Continental divide on the north, seventy-five miles distant. You can see three-fourths of the Salmon-Challis forest of over a million acres from this point. There are no camping sites on this trail, but there are dispersed camping sites at the trailhead.
