The Poker Peak roadless area is a small area in the Caribou Mountains in extreme Eastern Idaho that is separated from the larger Bear Creek roadless area by a dirt road. The Poker Peak is notable for its moose and elk populations, its unstable soils, and the fine views of Palisades Reservoir and the Snake River and Salt River Mountains to its northeast, east, and southeast.
