Peak 6220 by Brett Sergenian

Elevation: 6,220 ft
Prominence: 440

This peak is located southeast of Squaw Butte. Although a 4WD road leads close to its summit, it would be difficult to do this one as a drive up as the road conditions are quite rough.

Access

To reach this peak, follow Wilson Creek Rd to the Salmon Creek crossing. Cross Salmon Creek and turn south onto an unnamed road. Follow this road until you reach Murphy Creek and turn right. Follow this road until you reach a weather station and park here.

Route

If you think you can get up the steep hill to the south, cross Murphy Creek and drive up the hill to gain the ridge. Follow the road west until it ends. From there hike west for less than a mile and take this road uphill until it intersects with another road. Turn south and follow the road for about a mile that nearly leads to the summit. The views are excellent of the Silver City Range and the northern Owyhees. A 4WD vehicle is required unless you plan on a lengthy hike/run like I did. Coal Bank is a nearby unranked summit that looked interesting (could easily be combined with 6220) but I did not do it since I parked at Salmon Creek.
