I hiked War Eagle in late April, 2015. I took HWY 78 to Silver City Road, and then parked roughly a mile before Silver City at the start of a jeep road that is marked with a sign as F483 (my map calls it War Eagle Rd). I followed it South for a while before taking an ATV trail that led off to the right. ATV trails criss-cross all over this side of War Eagle, so there are plenty of routes to choose from. The trails are fairly steep and shaded, so I was in snow for much of the hike (wish I brought crampons!), even though this has been a very mild winter. The view of the Treasure Valley from the top was magnificent. It was a pretty short hike, too. No scrambling required. This is a hike that could be done with kids.
