Peak 6220 is a pyramidal hump located just above Sunny Cedar Rest Cemetery on the north side of Almo. This area is a mix of private and public land and this hike is almost entirely on BLM land, but it does cross a patch of private land at the cemetery. However, there is no fencing or signage to prohibit crossing the private land. USGS Elba

Sunny Cedar Rest Cemetery is located along ID-77 just north of Almo. It is signed, is shown on the USGS topo map, and has a decent dirt road leading up to it from ID-77. Park just outside the cemetery entrance (5,405 feet).

The Climb

From the cemetery entrance, hike west on a 2-track road on the south side of the cemetery fencing. Leave the road soon after passing the west end of the cemetery. Scramble northwest directly up the moderately-steep slope of easy scrub/scree/gravel and junipers to reach the summit. The summit has a tall cairn. The junipers are a bit cumbersome in spots and require some weaving but, overall, are not too bad.
