Wildhorse Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.913m (9,557ft) above the sea level, located in Custer County, Idaho, in USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads in Idaho. Located in the White Knob Mountains of central Idaho, the road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times.
The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle with high clearance required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. At the summit there’s a lookout tower built in 1935 and abandoned in 1946. It was subsequently restored in the 1970s. The views from the lookout are incredible. For your safety, be sure to check the weather forecast before you begin your trip. If there is a thunderstorm in the area, please do not visit a lookout. Located between the Lost River Range and the Pioneer Mountains, the summit provides excellent views of the core peaks of each range. It’s a great vantage point for beautiful mountain views in all directions.
