Access

Access the peak by turning off ID-21 onto Thorn Creek Road. Be advised that the Boise National Forest map does not accurately show the side roads in this area. Thorn Creek Road travels through private land past a number of houses for roughly 1.25 miles. Turn left onto [unsigned] Placer Creek Road and follow it uphill to a gate.

South Slopes, Class 2

Park below the gate. Hike up the closed road until you are south of the summit. Leave the road and hike north toward the high point. Be prepared for brushy conditions.
