The Bannock Range is discussed in more detail on Pages 355-359 of the book.
The Bannock Range begins just west of Pocatello. Its main crest stretches southeast for 65 miles, ending near Weston, Idaho and the Utah border. Geographically, besides the main crest, this upland encompasses a group of small escarpments, the North Promontory Range, the Blue Springs Hills, the Samaria Mountains and the Malad Range, that are loosely tied to the Bannock crest. All Bannock Range peaks covered on this site can be found at this link: Bannock Range Peaks
Livingston Douglas describes a four-peak Bannock Range traverse at this link: The Clifton Basin 4-Pack
—Updates/corrections to the text on Pages 356 and 358 of the book by Livingston Douglas (September 2018).
The Wright Creek National Recreation Trail does not cross Wakley Peak’s “Southwest Ridge”. It crosses the peak’s “South Ridge”. That correction makes the text on Page 356 consistent with the verbiage on Page 358. The Wright Creek Trail is only 3.5 miles to the Elkhorn Divide, not 5 miles as the book states. The trail heads in a W direction (WNW to be precise), not N as the book indicates.
The Wright Creek National Recreation Trail [(B)(2)(c)] is now FST-330, not FST-130. FST-330 is an ATV trail that is excellent for hiking, albeit a bit dusty. It climbs up to the Elkhorn Divide and crosses it at a small saddle at 8,260 feet, just north of Peak 8621. It does NOT cross above (and on the S side of) the saddle as the USGS topo map indicates.
The turnoff for the Wright Creek trailhead is located 0.6 miles before Summit Campground, not 0.2 miles as the book states.The Wright Creek trail does NOT go “north along the crest” as the book indicates. The trail actually drops down the west side of Elkhorn Mountain. Please consult the Caribou-Targhee NF Map/Westside Ranger District to see the location of FST-330.There is no formal trail on the South Ridge of Wakley Peak, but there are some segments of old jeep roads and cattle trails to help expedite your ascent of the South Ridge.
FST-133 is now FST-333; FST-134 is now FST-334. The ascent up the North Ridge from the trail crossing is 1.5 miles, not 1 mile (the text is contradictory on this mileage figure).
FST-133/Elkhorn Mountain Trail [(B)(2)(a)] is now FST-333/Summit Canyon Trail, as per the trailhead sign at the end of FSR-041.
