Peak 5950 is a ranked summit that is located along ID-47 southeast of Island Park. It sits above the ski runs at the Bear Gulch Ski Area. Peak 5950 is most easily climbed via a powerline service road that comes up from ID-47 to its south.
Park at a scenic overlook/pullout on the right/east side of ID-47 where the road crests (5,770 feet). This pullout is southeast of Peak 5950 and is south of the Bear Gulch Campground and Ski Area. It is about 0.4 miles northeast of the junction with the [unsigned] powerline service road (left/west side of the highway).
East Face/South Ridge, Class 2
From the parking pullout, bushwhack west through a forest thick with brush to intercept the powerline service road. Hike right/north up the service road below the powerlines to slightly beyond its crest. Leave the road and bushwhack left/northwest to reach the elusive high point of Peak 5950. It is NOT near the ski runs. It is on the west side of the summit plateau, as per the USGS topo map. The high point is in a forest thick with brush/veg and offers no visibility.
