USGS Peak is the 10th highest mountain in Idaho with an elevation of 11,982 feet. At one point in time this mountain was thought to have an elevation fo 12,000 feet, but after it was surveyed again in 1965 (with flares), its more accurate height was found. This peak is fairly remote in the Lost River Range and not easily visable from the valley below. The climb is quite long and requires hiking 4000+ feet up through talus. The hike takes you into the heart of the Lost River Range and gives you a great view of the mountains.
