PIONEER MOUNTAINS

Elevation: 0 ft

By almost any measure, the Pioneer Mountains is Idaho’s premier mountain range. Its peaks are high and wild. The rock is good. The scenic vistas are terrific. The lakes are pristine. The range stretches from west to east between Ketchum and Arco, Idaho covering a distance of nearly 50 miles. At its widest, the range is nearly 25 miles wide.
