Peak 7757 is located due north of South Mountain in the southern Owyhee Mountains. It is an attractive summit with a nice view. The summit of the peak is on BLM land and State land surrounds it on three sides.

ACCESS

Use the access directions on the South Mountain page to reach a point north of peak. Park at the junction which is 0.75 miles north of South Mountain’s summit.

ROUTE

From the junction a 4WD road traverses the ridge line north and eventually leads to a spot just below the summit. This track is drivable to the first saddle where there is parking. I recommend walking the rest of the way both to preserve the landscape and because the route is very poor after the first saddle. The summit is slightly less than a mile from the South Mountain Road and even with some up and down along the way your elevation gain will be less than 400 feet.
