This Flat Top Butte is located in Jerome County northeast of the junction of US-93/ID-25. The butte’s summit is a long north-south trending affair with numerous electronics installations. The high point is at the south end of the summit area. There is not much to recommend about this summit except for the view, which is expansive. USGS Falls City
