The latest USGS topo maps show this peak as a closed contour at 11280 feet, making its elevation in the range of 11280 to 11320 feet. However, this peak is universally considered to be higher than Koch Peak (11292 feet) and old elevations list it as 11316. This makes it the highest peak in Montana outside the Beartooth Range. Therefore, this site will list Hilgard as 11,316 feet so that it will come out as the highest in its range on automatically-created lists. Other sources list it as 11,297, also higher than Koch.

These rugged summit pinnacles make Hilgard Peak a landmark of the Madison Range (2007-08-21).
