DescriptionMount Idaho is a pyramid shaped mountain to the south of Mount Borah. It can be hiked from the west side of the range. The north face turns into an alpine ice route in the late summer, and the east face is an impressively steep 1000 foot wall that sits directly above Merriam Lake.
Getting ThereBoth the north and east faces are accessed from Merriam Lake. To get to Merriam Lake, take Doublespring Pass Road up and over Doublespring Pass. After about 10 miles look for a sharp right turn onto FS117 road that goes up a steep hill. Follow FS117 over Horse Heaven Pass. Go about 6 miles and then take a right onto FS118. Go 4.5 miles then take another right onto FS267. Drive to the end of this road and park at the trailhead. Follow the good trail up to Merriam Lake (about 3 miles). North and east side route approaches all start from here. There are many nice camp spots at Merriam Lake, and you would be hard pressed to find a more scenic place to stay.
