Elevation: 8,403 ft
This peak is found on page 345. Also see the Owyhee Mountains Peaks List for all of the peaks in this range. Updated September 2019.
The big Owyhee Peaks are carved up by mining roads and ruins and are often visited by ATVs. Still, hiking this country is rewarding and, at times, difficult.
Hayden Peak is most easily climbed from either its south ridge or its west ridge (starting from the saddle between it and Turntable Mountain). Access either route from the gravel road that originates out of Slaughterhouse Gulch, northeast of Silver City, Idaho, and ends at Hayden Peak summit. A high clearance 4WD for the road is recommended.
Because the Owhyees are a popular destination for ATV and dirt bike users, I recommend hiking this peak during the week to avoid excessive motorized traffic.
