Named after the creek that runs through this roadside preserve in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, Peach Creek Preserve provides habitat for elk and mule deer, and protects scenic views along the Salmon River Canyon. In a stretch of the Sawtooth Scenic Byway which is known for incredible beauty, protecting this property prevents additional development that could alter the remote feel that visitors currently experience in this part of Idaho.
