From the junction of ID-16 and ID-52 in Emmett, follow ID-52 north through a 4-way junction at 3.3 miles. Continue straight on Van Deusen Road for 13.0 miles, where the road reaches a junction after crossing Big Willow Creek. Take the left fork onto Four Mile Road. Four Mile Road is passable to most vehicles when dry. Follow this road for 10.1 miles and park on the side of the road.

Southeast Ridge, Class 2

From your parking spot, hike west toward the peak through open sage brush and grass lands. There is a small creek to cross at about 1.0 mile. From here, work your way either around or over Point 3685 and then descend down and cross a small drainage. Climb the southeast ridge to the top of Peak 3895. From the summit, I continued on to Peak 4035. My round-trip stats for both peaks was 7.1 miles with 1,950 feet of elevation gain. Had I not spent so much time walking up and down Peak 3895, the trip would have covered only 6.8 miles.
