Mt. Borah, Idaho
Elevation: 12,662 feet
Mileage: 6.8 miles
Vertical Gain: 5,500 feet
Route: Chicken-out Ridge

July 28th, 2001

Mount Borah is the tallest mountain in Idaho and ranked 6th hardest of the state's 50 highpoints. Although the hike to the summit is relatively short, 3.4 miles, it gains over a vertical mile in that distance. The trail is very steep and unrelenting. There is only about 1/10 of a mile of the trail that is flat or a grade less than 20%. Get in shape for this one.
