Elevation: 4,827 ft
This peak is not in the book.
One of the most inconspicuous Owyhee Mountains, this rounded summit is located just west of US-95. There are nice views from the summit and it would make a nice destination for mountain bikers. USGS Piute Butte
To reach the peak, drive 16.1 miles south of the ID-55/US-95 junction (just east of Marsing, Idaho) and turn west onto [unsigned] Sand Basin Road. Follow this road west to the first fork on your right in roughly 0.3 miles. You can follow this road north into a draw. The road to the summit will be the first road on your left. High-clearance vehicles should have no trouble with these roads when they are dry.
