This peak is located northwest of Ketchum, Idaho in an area populated by numerous sub-10,000 foot peaks. Although this area is probably most often used by ATVers and hunters, it has a number of worthwhile summits. Given its position, Lost Cliff Peak is an exceptional viewpoint for observing the surrounding mountains. The suggested name relates to our rescuing of a 15-year old kid named Cliff who we found wandering on the peak. He had a dead cell phone, no water, and only a vague idea of where he was going.

Peak 8825


Primary access is from ID-75 and Baker Creek Road/ FSR-162  [(A)(4) on Page 213]. Turn onto Baker Creek Road and follow it south for just over 3.0 miles. Just pass the East Fork Campground, turn onto FSR-168/East Fork Baker Creek Road. Follow FSR-168 to the west side of Peak 8825 which, depending upon where you park, is about 9.3 miles from ID-75.

West Slopes, Class 2

The peak’s west slopes are a mix of forest and sagebrush terrain. Almost any line from the road will take you to the top, where you will find the remnants of a survey and outstanding views. There are two nearly equal distant high points. The one with the survey detritus appears to be a few feet higher.
