Judi Steciak reports that access has changed for the Eighteenmile Peak, Jump Peak areal. Please find below the 2011 BLM map for access to the Eighteenmile Wilderness Study Area in the Beaverhead Mountains. This would replace the (B)(6.1) Eighteen Mile Creek Road description on p. 329 and it avoids private property. We used this map with an Idaho back roads atlas and topographic maps.

The road was re-graded in 2011 and is accessible to higher clearance passenger cars. There are at least two outfitter camps in the Eighteenmile WSA during hunting season.
