Peak 5096 (Station Peak)

Elevation: 5,090 ft
Prominence: 316

This peak is not in the book. Additional Danskin Mountains access information can be found in the book at (D)(1) at pages 154-5 and (G)(1) at page 156. Also see the following website page: Danskin Mountains OHV Trails. Published 2015, Updated June 2018


This unnamed Danskin Mountains peak is located on a long north south ridge line between Grouse Creek and Blacks Creek. Access the peak from the Blacks Creek Road [(G)(1)]. This peak and Peak 5100 can be combined into a great 9.0 mile round trip ridge walk with great views. If you have hiked Kepros Peak and enjoyed the walk you will find this walk it equal.

Peak 5090 viewed from the south. The old road that follows the ridge line to this peak and Peak 5100 is closed to motor vehicles.

Drive Blacks Creek Road over Blacks Creek Summit. Roughly 1.0 below the pass is Woodtick Creek, FST-291 starts here and works up the creek for a short ways and then 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 highest 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 on to and past Peak 5100 with a few up and down stretches. When you reach a gate in the fence on Peak 5100’s east ridge pass through the gate and then make the short climb to the summit.
