Peak 5016

Elevation: 5,016 ft
Prominence: 316

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

Peak 5016 is perfectly situated to take in the entire Reynolds Creek drainage and the many peaks that surround that high mountain valley. The peak is an easy hike of 0.7 miles and 400 feet of elevation gain via its North Ridge. Access the ridge from the Reynolds Stage Coach Road/Rabbit Creek Road. Access this road from ID-78 at the north end of Murphy. Follow this well-maintained road until it crosses the peak’s North Ridge at a pass. Park and hike through the sagebrush to the summit. There are dozens of Owyhee Mountains peaks, named and unnamed, that you can view from the summit including Quicksilver Mountain, Hayden Peak, Soldier Cap and Wilson Peak. USGS Reynolds
