Bitterroot Peaks: Nez Perce Pass to Lost Trail Pass

There are 21 “border peaks” that set directly on the Bitterroot crest which forms the Idaho-Montana border between Nez Perce Pass and Lost Trail Pass. This stretch of mountains runs south, east, northeast and south east while making its way to Lost Trail Pass. Only four of the 21 peaks have official names. The book includes two of these “border peaks” on page 89. 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 or north or south of the crest.

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