Access

The Gooding City of Rocks Road crosses over the peak’s southern shoulder. Take ID-46 north from Gooding for 15 miles. Turn west at the BLM sign for City of Rocks. Follow the signs and follow this road in a westerly direction until you reach a saddle due south of the summit. The saddle is marked as 5572 on the USGS quad. Note that this road is occasionally maintained but still a rough dirt road with occasional mud holes.

Southern 4WD road, Class 1

The road that climbs from the saddle to the summit is passable to high clearance vehicles with all terrain tires when dry. The road works as an excellent trail. Distance to the top is 0.9 miles with just over 300 feet of gain.
