Turn left/west onto 400N and follow it (ignoring other roads that bend off of it) for 8.7 miles to an unsigned junction with an ATV trail that goes straight west.  400N bends right/northwest here to skirt the north side of Ninemile Knoll. Park at this junction (4,907 feet on the USGS map). The GPS coordinates at this junction are: 43⁰56’32”N, 111⁰57’23”W.

The Climb

From the road junction, hike west up the sandy ATV trail to a ridge crest. Follow a weaker ATV trail (not shown on maps) left/south a short distance to reach the summit. There is no summit cairn. A few ground boulders (clustered together) are the high point. This peak is a combination of sand and sagebrush.
