Ursa Peak is located above the scenic Trail Creek drainage. Its summit protrudes north into the relatively small Rear Creek drainage. Since this peak is located on the divide that separates the North Fork Big Lost River drainage from the Trail Creek drainage, it can be approached from either drainage. USGS Meridian Peak

South Ridge, Class 3
From the Trail Creek Trail at roughly 8,400 feet, climb to the ridgeline directly south of the summit. The South Ridge protrudes north from the crest and cliffs out. To avoid Class 5 climbing, traverse out onto the ridge’s East Face until you can find a safe line to move upward. Use the link below to read Brett Sergenian’s trip report.
