Juniper Mountain is located in the southern Owyhee Mountains about 45 miles southeast of Jordan Valley. Although only 6820′, Juniper Mountain is quite large and has several unranked summits. According to LOJ, Juniper Mountain is practically a drive up.
Take Mud Flat Road south of Jordan Valley for about 40 miles until you reach a signed turnoff for Juniper Mountain. Follow the road south for about five miles and park. The summit is a few feet east of the road according to the LOJ although on topo maps Juniper Mountain is marked about a mile to the southeast which is 100′ lower. On such a broad summit the high point is difficult to locate. A high clearance vehicle is recommended and the road is also a nice spot to run or hike as the area has excellent views of the Owyhees and neighboring ranges. The road is quite gradual too gaining about 1200′.
