Peak 5090

Elevation: 5,090 ft

This peak is not in the book.


This unnamed Danskin Mountains peak is located on a long north south ridge line between Grouse Creek and Blacks Creek. Access the peak from the Blacks Creek Road [(G)(1)]. This peak and Peak 5100 can be combined into a great 9.0 mile round trip ridge walk with great views. If you have hiked Kepros Peak and enjoyed the walk you will find this walk it equal.

Drive Blacks Creek Road over Blacks Creek Summit. Roughly 1.0 below the pass is Woodtick Creek, FST-291 starts here and works up the creek for a short ways and then crosses the creek. The trail quickly climbs up to a pass at the head of Grouse Creek and a junction. The left fork descends into the drainage. Follow the right fork along the ridge toward the summit which is reached in 1.67 miles. You will need to leave the trail just before the summit and cross a fence to reach the highest point. Please note that there is a large section of private land in this area and access could be closed in the future. The road continues on to and past Peak 5100 with a few up and down stretches. When you reach a gate in the fence on Peak 5100’s east ridge pass through the gate and then make the short climb to the summit.
