Paul Benchmark is a Beaverhead Mountains summit that is located west of Monida Pass. Rick Baugher states: “Anyone serious about climbing the mountains of the I-15 corridor . . . should not pass up Paul Benchmark. The peak is located off the Humphrey Exit in Clark County, Idaho. This triangulation station has been shown as either in the Beaverhead Range or the Centennial Range depending on which map you use. Geographically and geologically, it better belongs in the Tendoy Range of Montana. This mountain is made up of quartzite cobble-shaped rock by powerfully-flowing streams in the Mesozoic Era.” USGS Paul Reservoir
