Hwy 46 between Fairfield and Gooding is in a high plain with several likely-looking turnouts and hilltops along the road. For example, near the "City of Rocks" road on the east side it looks like an open hilltop with mild height.

Driving directions: From Mountain Home take Hwy 20 east, drive 52 miles.
At Fairfield turn right onto Hwy 46 south, drive 13 miles.
At 43.163824, -114.658626 turn east on unpaved road, drive a half mile.

Danksin Peak is 20 miles due north of Mountain Home and is very visible from the Interstate as you head to/from Boise. The peak rises high above the desert to its south and very steeply above the South Fork Boise River to its north. The top has impressive views in all directions, with the Snake River Plain and Owyhee mountains to the south. To the north is the green Smith Prairie and the Boise and Trinity Mountains, which are very impressive from this angle. Read more at IdahoSummits.com

Satellite view of road looks impassable. At this altitude the road will be snow-covered for most of the year. But it sure is a nice tall peak, even though it's so remote.

A good peak where ground slopes away in all directions. Satellite view shows one radio tower and some cars.

Driving directions: Bell Mtn is 3 hours east of Boise (about 2.5 hours east of Mountain Home)
Careful with your GPS and Google Maps - there is another different Bell Mtn near Clyde that has no roads
Your route must be through Gannett or Bellevue
Hwy 20 east from Mountain Home
At Stanton Crossing, turn north onto State Hwy 75
Drive through Bellevue on Main Street
Turn right onto Pine Street, this becomes Muldoon Canyon Road (5.5 mi)
Turn right onto Sharps Canyon Road (5 mi to top)

The south peak of Bennett Mtn is (almost) free of commercial towers. The north peak is loaded with'm. This spot is ten miles northeast of Mountain Home and should be relatively easy to reach from I-84.
