Salmon Butte

Elevation: 5,389 ft
Prominence: 319

Salmon Butte is located west of Rodgerson, Idaho, and US-93. This volcanic remnant on the southern edge of the Snake River Plain offers an easy, quick ascent and decent views, especially of the nearby Salmon Falls Reservoir.

Take the paved Jarbridge Road west from Rogerson toward the dam. The road heads directly to the Butte and then swings around its northern flank with a big, sweeping right hand turn. A rough road leaves the pavement at this point. Pass through the gate onto BLM land and follow the road toward the summit. At the point where the road turns south toward a communications facility park, it is a short walk to the summit. In fact, it is a short walk even if you start at the gate. Class 1+.
