The Cabinet Mountains are part of the Rocky Mountains, located in northwest Montana and the Idaho panhandle, in the United States. The mountains cover an area of 2,134 square miles (5,527 km²). The Cabinet Mountains lie south of the Purcell Mountains, between the Kootenai River and Clark Fork River and Idaho's Lake Pend Oreille.
The highest peaks are Snowshoe Peak (8,738 ft, 2,663 m), A Peak (8,634 ft, 2,632 m), Bockman Peak (8,174 ft, 2,491 m), and Elephant Peak (7,938 ft, 2,433 m).
The Cabinets are noted, along with the nearby Selkirk Mountains, as being some of the most "wild" mountains left in the contiguous United States. They are home to mule deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, black bear, grizzly bear, wolverine, wolves and many smaller species.
