Easy hike, started at 5pm hungover and made it up somehow. Awesome view but be prepared for some wind!

Date Climbed: May 3, 1964


Lucky Peak was the first real mountain I climbed at age 11. We started from Highway 21, went over Table Rock and climbed the southwest ridge. On another trip we climbed to the summit and traversed the ridge to Aldape Summit.

Easy to get to the trailhead from Boise, great training hike for elevation/distance! No spectacular scenery really but great training. Good view of Treasure Valley and Bogus Basin from the top

Good hike for being so close to Boise. I even saw some lizards near the top and hiked through a forest.

Nice day to hike; a fresh dusting of snow made it a little more scenic.

Went up shaw mountain rd. For about 4.5miles parked found a trail that was a pretty steep hike up to the yree line then found myself on a jeep trail all the way to the top. Great day :)

Drove 1.3 miles up the Highland Valley Road and walked the rest of the way to the top. Great views of the Boise Valley. Beautiful sunny November day, nice leg stretcher.

IdahoDaisyAwesome local climb...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2012


It's no 14er but it is an awesome hike close to town, especially in spring and fall. Took trails 12 and 8 in early April 2012. Lots of snow at the top but we were okay without any snow gear. Beautiful view from up top and a great early season training hike!

mjholmesGood Training Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2011


This peak is very accessible from Boise making it a great training trail for hiking, running and mountain biking. I've hiked it several times from the Council Springs TH. It's mostly dry, so take whatever water you need. Bring a leash for your dog.

idpeakgirlGreat training hike!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2011


I've lost count how many times I've hiked this trail from Council Springs. It's a Great training hike done in a 1/2 day or so. From the summit, a lesser used trail on the SW ridgeline gives you a scenic shortcut back to the main trail.

Date Climbed: May 17, 2011


Trying to get in shape for the climbing season ahead I drove up the Highland Summit on Highway 21 and climbed up to the top of Lucky Peak and back. It was a nice hike in the hot sun that day, but made it to the top with the three dogs and back down.

Long 5.5 miles up and 5.5 back down. I totally enjoyed it and hung out with the Bird Branding project people for a while. They were setting traps for Owls at night and luring Hawks in by day. Also were branding the Songbirds

LudditeOnce a month.


This is a great run. I try to see if I can do it in under 3 hours up and back.

Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2008


Climbed solo today. Was nice and sunny and I got burned a bit. There was still a lot of snow on the upper section. This was my 2nd time up of probably many more to come. I will have to trie the Boise Front Range Traverse next.
