This peak is not in the book.


Peak 4700 is a minor Boise Mountains summit located next to Mores Creek and ID-21. Due to its low elevation the peak can be accessed early in the Spring.

The peak is part of land owned by the State of Idaho. Access the peak by turning off ID-21 on to the Thorn Creek Road. (Be advised that the Boise National Forest map does not accurately show the side roads in this area.) The Thorn Creek road travels through private land past a number of houses for roughly 1.25 miles. Turn left onto the unsigned Phiefer Creek Road and follow it uphill to a gate. Park below the gate and then work your way toward the summit on the closed road until you are below the summit. Leave the road and hike to the high point. Class 2.
