East Burnt Peak sits east of the head of the East Fork of Burnt Creek. See map below, which shows this intermittent stream as East Fork Burnt Creek. This peak is connected to Apex Peak via a saddle at 9,360 feet. This grass- and talus-covered peak can be approached from almost any direction. USGS Massacre Mountain
Access the peak from the Burnt Creek Canyon Roads [(A)(6.2) on Page 290]. Follow the road into the drainage until the road drops down off a high point to East Fork Burnt Creek.
East Fork Burnt Creek Approach, Class 2
From the end of the road, walk past the fence and follow the trail along the East Fork Burnt Creek until you reach Burnt Creek Lake. This unofficial trail was in good shape in July 2017. The trail passes the lake on its East Side and disappears in the meadow at the South End of the lake. Continue up the drainage. You will find a good game trail most of the way to the saddle between Apex Peak and East Burnt Peak. Once you get above 8,600 feet, you can follow almost any line to the summit.
