Peak 9140

Elevation: 9,140 ft
Prominence: 480

This peak is not in the book.


This peak sits southeast of Trinity Mountain and Big Rainbow Lake. The peak has two summits of almost equal height. The easternmost summit is allegedly five feet higher than the western summit according to the USGS? It’s hard to tell which is higher. Climb the peak from the road that leads up to Trinity Mountain. Leave the road at the 9200 foot contour, drop into the saddle at 8,600 feet and work you way over via the connecting ridge. You can continue from its summit on to Peak 9165 via the connecting ridge line. CHeck out the Trinity Mountains archives for all the beautiful peaks in this subrange of the Boise Mountains.USGS Trinity Mountain.
