Glass Hill

Glass Hill viewed from Tennessee Mountain.

This peak is not in the book. Also see the Owyhee Mountains Peaks List for all of the peaks in this range.


Glass Hill is located on the northwestern end of the northern Owyhee Mountains crest  west of Slacks Mountain. After a long drive the summit is a short walk from the Northern Owyhee Crest Road as it passes by the peak. One would expect a peak named Glass Hill to have a lot of obsidian on its slopes. However, that is not the case and thus, the origin of the name is not known.

East Ridge, Class 2

Follow the Northern Owyhee Crest Road until you are due east of the Glass Hill. There is a junction at this point with parking. It is short walk from the junction to the base of the peak’s east ridge and then a short climb up to the summit.
