Borah Peak Wilderness Study Area

In Idaho, BLM manages over 3,000 acres of public lands in the Borah Peak Wilderness Study Area. This steep west-sloping terrain includes vegetation of sagebrush-grass with scattered mountain mahogany. At 12,655 feet, Borah Peak is the highest point in Idaho. This spectacular mountain gives the visitor the feeling of approaching the "top of the world" and seems to spread out as far as the eye can see. The area also provides outstanding hiking, backpacking, wildlife viewing, hunting cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sightseeing and photography opportunities.
