Danskin Peak is discussed on page 153.


Danskin Peak is the highest point in the Danskin Mountains. A road leads to its summit and a large fire lookout. The road makes a great route for a mountain bike ascent. You can also climb the peak from just about any direction but the best approach is from Mountain Home. Take Canyon Creek Road north out of town. The road eventually crosses Canyon Creek and then runs west for a total of 14.1 miles where the road junctions with FS-167. Turn right onto 167 and follow it, climbing steeply, for 8.8 miles to a junction by a small reservoir. Turn north  and follow the road for 4.4 miles to the Danskin crest. Turn right and follow the road to the summit in another 3.3 steep miles. A 4WD is recommended. Class 1.
