Sheep Mountain 10865

Elevation: 10,865 ft

This peak is found on page 304.


Based on the fact that there are 12 peaks named Sheep Mountain in Idaho, I guess it’s a fair assessment that sheep. are popular in Idaho. (I note that there are also Sheepeater peaks and Sheephorn Peaks as well as other derivatives incorporating the word sheep in the name.) This Lemhi Range Sheep Mountain is the second highest Idaho Sheep Mountain, trailing only a Sheep Mountain in the Boulder Mountains.

With a 4WD and good driving skills, a person can make it to the Bruce Estate Mine and follow the ridge to the summit. See The Spring Mountain Canyon page for driving information.
