Borah Peak ID 2-22-15
Borah Peak is the highest summit of the U.S. State of Idaho.

This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks of the U.S. State of Idaho.

The summit of a mountain or hill may be measured in three principal ways:

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the summit above a geodetic sea level. The first table below ranks the 40 highest major summits of Idaho by elevation.
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings. The second table below ranks the 40 most prominent summits of Idaho.
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation. The third table below ranks the 40 most isolated major summits of Idaho.

Highest major summits

Of the highest major summits of Idaho, ten peaks exceed 3500 meters (11,483 feet) elevation and 34 peaks exceed 3000 meters (9843 feet) elevation.
