Donkey Benchmark is the highpoint of the Donkey Hills, a small range that lies in the 10-mile wide gap separating the Lemhi and Lost River ranges. Donkey Hills divides the Pahsimeroi River and Little Lost River watersheds, with the Pahsimeroi Valley descending to the northwest and the Little Lost River Valley descending to the southeast.

The range includes five 9,000’ mountains and two P1Ks along with several lesser peaks. It seems unclear whether the Donkey Hills should be regarded as a PEMRACS Range6 child of the Lost River Range or merely an outlier thereof.
