The East Hills High Point is located south east of Delco, Idaho. Its summit provides an excellent view of the middle section of the Snake River Plain. An ATV track now leads up to nearly the summit. Zack Vickery’s trip report linked below is the most current report.

Rick Baugher’s trip report follows:

On 3/5/13 I drove 3 miles south of Declo, then east on 300 South to the end of the graded county road. From 4600′ hike E up BLM two track. Track got steep and took care to skirt the slick muddy patches.
