Set high in the Salmon River Mountains, within the Salmon-Challis National Forest, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Red Mountain Road. The road is usually impassable in winters.
The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 21% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting at the paved ID-21, the ascent is 33.47km (20.8 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 884 meters.
