Smith Mountain is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.442m (8,011ft) above the sea level located in Adams County, Idaho, in USA.
The road to the summit is a gravel 4wd track. It’s called Black Lake Road. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. The road is a bit rocky and muddy in places.
The peak is located within the Payette National Forest. The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you! At the summit there’s a lookout called Smith Mountain lookout. Established with a camp in 1908, a cupola cabin was built in 1920. This was replaced by an L-4 cab in 1932. The present 10' concrete base with 16x16' cab, built in 1963, is available for emergencies.
