Peak 5096 (Station Peak)

Elevation: 5,096 ft
Prominence: 316

This peak is not in the book. Additional Danskin Mountains access information is in the book [(D)(1) on Pages 154-155 and (G)(1) on Page 156]. Also see the following website page: Danskin Mountains OHV Trails. Updated June 2018


Peak 5096 is located on a long North-South ridge between Grouse Creek and Blacks Creek. Access the peak from Blacks Creek Road [(G)(1) on Page 156]. Peak 5096 and Peak 5100 can be combined into a great 9.0-mile round trip ridge walk with great views. If you have hiked Kepros Mountain and enjoyed the walk, you will find this walk its equal.

Access

Drive up Blacks Creek Road over Blacks Creek Summit. Roughly 1.0 below the pass is Woodtick Creek. There is parking for 1-2 vehicles.

Southeast Ridge, Class 2

FST-291 starts here, works up the creek for a short ways, and crosses the creek. The trail quickly climbs up to a pass at the head of Grouse Creek and a junction. The left fork descends into the drainage. Follow the right fork along the ridge toward the summit, which is reached in 1.67 miles. You will need to leave the trail just before the summit and cross a fence to reach the high point. Please note that there is a large section of private land in this area and access could be closed in the future. The road continues past Peak 5100 with a few ups and downs. When you reach a gate in the fence on Peak 5100’s East Ridge, pass through the gate and make the short climb to the summit.
