Elevation: 8,825 ft
This peak is not in the book. Livingston Douglas added three new photos. Updated November 2022
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.

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.
