Blacktail Mountain

Elevation: 4,960 ft

This peak is not in the book.


Blacktail Mountain is located on the west side of Lake Pend Oreille, roughly 5.0 miles east of Cocallala, Idaho. The peak is one of 100 Idaho summits with more than two thousand feet of prominence (2770) which ensures it sees a few ascents by peakbaggers each year. Butler Mountain can also be accessed from the same trail. The forest service maintains this trail and it receives use from dirt bikes.
