Access

This Peak is best accessed from Davis Mountain Road. This road runs from east to west on the south side of the Bennett Mountain Hills Crest between Gooding City of Rocks Road in the east and Monument Gulch Road in the west. I mapped out my route below. More information on these access routes is found on the Bennett Mountain Hills page. Once you are on the Davis Mountain Road, follow it until you reach a saddle due south of East Twin Peak at 5,913 feet.

South Ridge, Class 2

A 4WD road climbs up the peak’s South Ridge to within 100 vertical feet of the summit. From the road’s end, hike the last bit to the summit where you will find a large cairn and a beautiful view.
