Notch Butte is located just southeast of Shoshone, Idaho. The building on the summit was once a fire lookout. It was converted to an enclosed radio tower sometime in the early 2000s. It is a short hike or mountain bike ride to the summit from US-93. USGS Shoshone
Livingston Douglas Updates
Notch Butte Road (unsigned) is located on US-93 exactly 3.0 miles south of the US-93/ID-24 junction at the south end of Shoshone. It is also 11.0 miles north of the US-93/ID-25 junction on US-93. Notch Butte Road is unsigned but the antenna-clad butte is obvious. Drive 0.2 miles up Notch Butte Road and park (4,180 feet) or drive farther up (and left at a junction high up) to reach the summit.
West Face, Class 1
From the parking area, hike east up the service road and go straight/left at an unsigned junction high up. Continue up the road to the summit area. There is a USGS benchmark in a ground boulder just west of the summit “foundation” high point.
