Elevation: 7,905 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Access the peak from ID-21 at Mores Creek Summit by turning north onto FS-380. Follow this rough road to the saddle northwest of the summit of Pilot Peak. There is a four way junction at this point. A right turn will take you to Pilot Peak. A left turn will take you on a difficult 4WD road that follows the ridge top toward Freeman Peak. Continue north on FS-380 dropping off the saddle to the first major intersection. Turn left and follow this road southwest to the north side of Freeman Peak where you will encounter FST-690. This trail is open to ATVs. You can park just below junction.
If you want to approach the peak from the north see the Jackson Peak page.
FST-690 Route (Class 1).
FST-690 is closed to vehicles larger than ATVs but it is basically a road with a couple of spots that are likely impassable to full size vehicles. The road will take along a scenic ridge to the summit in 2.0 miles with around 450 of elevation gain. Round trip elevation gain is just under 900 feet. The trail continues north to Coulter Summit and another trail goes west to nearby Wilson Peak.
