Peak 5684

Elevation: 5,684 ft

This peak is not in the book.


Peak 5684 is located on the Idaho-Montana border in the Bitterroot Mountain Range of the Clearwater National Forest. This peak is located just northeast of Lolo Pass. Like many peaks in this area, it is covered by thick forests on one side and an old clearcut on another slope.

To climb the peak, look for a gated road leaving the south side of US-12 just east of the easternmost road that leads to the visitor center. Follow this road east a couple hundred yards, park, and then climb up to the Idaho-Montana border and follow the ridge to the summit by staying within the clearcut.

I found sections of game trails in places that lead me through the bear grass and brush. The route was 0.9 miles with 450 feet of elevation gain.
