Bitterroot Peaks: Lolo Pass to Nez Perce Pass

There are 54 “border peaks” that set directly on the Bitterroot crest which forms the Idaho-Montana border between Lolo Pass and Nez Perce Pass. This stretch of mountains is extremely rugged, remote and seldom visited. Perhaps this is why only seven of the 54 peaks have official names. These peaks are listed below. The book includes 18 Bitterroot peaks in this section but only six of the 54 “border peaks” are included in the book. This is due to the lack of available information available in 2000 and my limited visits to the area which is primarily accessed from Montana.

The peaks are listed from north to south. Peaks are either linked to this website or LoJ if I do not have a page for the peak. This list does not include Bitterroot peaks that sit west or east of the crest.

The peaks in the list are formatted as follows: name, elevation/prominence rise.
