Red Mountain

Elevation: 8,809 ft

This peak is not in the book.


This peak is the high point of the Gannett Hills, an associate of the Pruess Range and as such, part of the bigger Peale Mountains group. USGS Meade Peak

The following is Rick Baugher’s report. Red Mountain el 8809′, prominence 1199′, to the best of our knowledge, is the highpoint of the Gannett Hills. The summit of the mountain is located in Bear Lake County, Idaho.

On 10/26/01 I drove and rode from Montpelier, ID to the summit of Crow Creek Road, el 7481′. From here the hike went east, ascending yet more muddy, trailless slopes to reach the summit of Red Mountain in the red of sunset light. Great view of Thomas Fork Valley. Near top saw a herd of 20 elk. Was lucky not to be shot by hordes of hunters in the area.
