Pickle Butte sits alongside ID-55 at a sharp turn just east of Marsing, Idaho. This peak is on private property but there is no signage or fencing prohibiting entry. But this is Idaho and it is still necessary to get permission to hike this minor butte. Please note that this butte should not be confused with Pickles Butte (3,084 feet) which is only a few miles away to the southeast. USGS Marsing
