The following is Rick Baugher’s report:

Red Mountain (8,809 feet), to the best of my knowledge, is the high point of the Gannett Hills. The summit of the mountain is located in Bear Lake County. On 10/26/01, I drove and rode from Montpelier, ID to the summit of Crow Creek Road (7,481 feet). From here, the hike went east, ascending yet more muddy, trail-less slopes to reach the summit of Red Mountain in the red of sunset light. Great view of Thomas Fork Valley. Saw a herd of 20 elk near the top. Was lucky not to be shot by hoards of hunters in the area.
