Fun goofy little mountain  Sucess!

Passed a Boise River WMA sign and trail gate along Blacks Creek Road earlier in the year and had to investigate where it went! Turned out to be a fun old two-track route up Three Point longer than the standard Kepros route (2.6 miles to the first [middle] point). Made it a nice loop running the singletrack part of Kepros until I intersected with the two-track and headed southwest on it rather than the opposite way toward Kepros. The 400' climb at the end to complete the loop sucked, but overall a fun and quiet route! Now I wave to all three points every time I'm driving east of Boise :)

Short and Sweet  Sucess!

I was short on time and wanted to have a winter hike that wouldn't turn into an epic... This fits the bill! Sweet views from the top!

Windy and snowy  Sucess!

Looking for a quick after-work hike and I found it here. Just below the ridgeline, I started off-trail and found some knee high snowdrifts (which was nice to clean the dust off the hiking boots). Animal count was 7 mule deer during the climb and at the summit. I was going to hit all three peaks, but the snow started coming down, so I headed back to the car. This was a great place to get out in the middle of the winter.

Good on a summer morning  Sucess!

Led a group of some 15 IdahoOutdoors yahoo group members and 6 dogs, having advertised "Three Peaks Before Noon!" The result was a happy crowd feeling a sense of accomplishment and half a day left for other things.

East side  Sucess!

Added some trail cruising to the north to add to the short ascent. Kepros was a bit too far away with start times for the state track meet staring at me.

Critter count: 2 lizards.

Windy and solo.  Sucess!

Did this as the start of my hike to Kepros. Windy and no body else out there.

Nice Day  Sucess!

Didn't have a lot of time today so I decided on Three Point. The whole trip from Boise and back took about 2 1/2 hours. The snow was firm and the views were good. Saw an Ermine and 2 deer as well. It also looked like I was the first one to climb it this year according to the summit register. I didn't see any evidence of anyone else having climbed it recently either.

Windy Day  Sucess!

Nice short steep hike. Very windy today, was going to head to Kepros but bagged that idea early on. Nice to have something like this close to Boise.

Took the Family.  Sucess!

Took the wife and both kids (4 and 9) up and everyone did very well. Beautiful arrow-leaved balsamroot and lupine covering the hillside!

Good snowshoeing  Sucess!

Snowshoed to the top with my son on my back and with the dog postholing along. Nice views.

My first time ...  Sucess!

on this peak was with my sister. She was in for X-mas and hates to stay indoors for more that two days. So I thought a jaunt out to the Danskins would be just the ticket. We had a storm move in on us just as we rounded the last curve to the trailhead. The fog was so damn thick that I'm still not entirely sure we made all the summits! The snow made it feel more remote than it actually is.

The Triple  Sucess!

Hiked out to Three Point after returning from Kepros. Got pelted with snow and frozen rain for a while on the last two points. Trip Report

Cold and Windy  Sucess!

Short hike in the morning with the dog. Close to Boise and you can get to it in winter!
