Access

This Peak is best accessed from the Davis Mountain Road. This Road runs from east to west on the southern side of the Bennett Mountain Hills crest between the Gooding City of Rocks Road in the east and the Monument Gulch Road in the west. I mapped out my route below. More information on these access routes are 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 the peak at 5,913 feet.

South Ridge, Class 2

A 4WD road climbs up the peak’s southern ridge to within one hundred vertical feet below the summit. From the road’s end hike the last bit to the summit where you will find a large cairn and a massive view.

My route up East Twin Peak followed a 4WD road. Total length one way was 0.9 miles with 654 feet of gain.
