Getting There

This short two track trail off McIntyre Spring Road near Succor Creek State Natural Area leads up to Three Fingers Rock, one of the highest points in the northern Owyhees at 4,783 feet. The East Finger is easy to climb, the Middle Finger has technical routes rated four and above, and the West Finger is a scramble.

The nearest facilities are in the towns of Homedale and Marsing. Succor Creek State Natural Area has a campground with vault toilets, but no running water. There is no cell phone service in most of the Owyhee Wilderness.

Bring lunch with you and enjoy the views of the Treasure Valley and the Owyhee Wilderness from the top! It is quite remote, so bring extra water and other necessary supplies.

From Boise, there are two routes: Route 1 - Homedale: Drive to Homedale on Homedale Road and continue west on Succor Creek Highway. At 6.6 miles past town, turn left onto Succor Creek Road. Continue south, passing through Succor Creek State Natural Area. At mile 20.1, turn right onto McIntyre Spring Road. The quality of the road decreases here. The parking area and trail are on the left (west) side of the road at 3.8 miles. Route 2 - Marsing: Drive to Marsing on Highway 55. Just outside of town, turn left onto Highway 95. After 19.1 miles, turn right onto McBride Creek Road. At 8.7 miles, turn right onto Succor Creek Road as it crosses the small collection of ranches known as Rockville. Succor Creek Road turns north and parallels the ranchland for several miles. At 6.9 miles, McIntyre Springs Road is on the left. The quality of the road decreases here. The parking area and trail are on the west side of the road at 3.8 miles. Alternate Route: McIntyre Spring Road can be accessed from the north on Camp Kettle Creek Road, but it is very primitive and rocky and requires high clearance and AWD.

First to Review

Amazing hike for the views. I went at the end of the day as the sun was setting and it was well worth the drive from Boise. The roads are a bit rough, and if you're using Google Maps, it leads you off on the wrong road as you approach from Rockville, so follow the directions posted here. The scrambling up the west finger wasn't too difficult, as there were enough large, steadily planted rocks to hold and step on. Nothing technical, but enough to get your heart pumping.
