Peak 6927

Elevation: 6,927 ft

This peak is not in the book.

This peak sits directly on the Bitterroot Mountains crest and the Idaho-Montana border. Dan Saxton provided the following information on the peak:

“It’s not that significant of a peak, and I actually don’t have any distinctive photos of it from a distance (the pic below is of me on top). Basically, it is just off the (unmaintained) State Line Trail, which totally disappears just south of the summit for 2/3mi on the way to Leo Lake (it is not marked correctly on the map either). Some very nice views south into the heart of the Shale Mountain area, it’s a good place to go for a relatively easy hike from the Schley Mountain THs.”

Dan provided the following access information:

“From the Schley Mountain TH at the end of the road, follow the State Line Trail #738 to the MT/ID state line. About 50 yards before you reach the sign marking the MT/ID border, look left to see the remnants of an old road forking off to the east (unsigned). That is the continuation of the State Line Trail south. Don’t be fazed by its slightly overgrown nature – follow the track about 1/4 mile to where it clearly becomes a single trail. If in doubt, seek to gain the north ridge of Peak 6,927. The path reaches the ridge, but then soon goes onto the west side (the map is incorrect here), climbing up until it reaches a meadow just south of Peak 6,927 – and abruptly vanishes.”
