Thanks to Dan for adding this peak.

Hyndman peak is a beautiful peak near Sun Valley, Idaho. It is the highest mountain in the Pioneer range and the 9th highest in Idaho, at 12,009 feet. There was a time in the 19th century that Hyndman was thought to be the highest peak in Idaho Territory.

To access the most popular (and easiest) route, from Hailey travel north 7 miles on Id 75 or from Ketchum/Sun Valley travel south 5 miles on the same highway to the light at East Fork Rd. Turn east and follow the paved road to the small mining hamlet of Triumph where the road turns to dirt. After about 1 mile the road forks. Go left at the fork for 5 miles and park at the end of this road at North Fork Hyndman Creek. The trail follows an old road for 3 miles to the base of Cobb Peak and from there goes up the hillside, reaches a flat and leads to the meadows below Hyndman Peak. Head for the saddle between Hyndman (on your left) and Old Hyndman (on your right). From the saddle take the ridge to the summit staying on the south (left) side. Class 2
