The Never Sweat Hills[1] are located south of Sand Pass.

The location was named in 1965[2] to commemorate the fact that the Honey Lake area was known as the "Land of the Never Sweats"[3] because emigrants were able to easilty fatten oxen and then trade them with emigrants for trail-weary oxen at the rate of one fattened ox for two trail-weary oxen.[4]
