Elevation: 8,180 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 8180, also known as Lewis and Clark Ridge, is the southernmost Bitterroot Mountain summit along the range’s crest. It is located due west of US-93 at Lost Trail Pass and it is the highest point of the Lost Trail Pass Ski Resort. The peak also lies on the border of Idaho County and Lemhi County as well as border of the Bitterroot and Salmon national forests.
Its summit is reached by a ski lift and a road. The road leaves the ski area’s large parking lot just below the lodge and and climbs up to the summit in a steep 1.5 miles. The road is in good condition and high clearance vehicles and mountain bikes would have no trouble navigating it.
