Access

From the I-84/ID-21 exit drive 31.9 miles on ID-20 to the junction with the FH-61, the Featherville Highway. Turn north and follow the paved road 4.1 miles to its junction with the High Prairie Road. Turn right. In 400 feet you will come to a Y-junction, go left and continue for a total of 0.3 miles. Look for a two track on your right. Turn onto the two track and follow it for roughly 0.6 miles to a meadow and a fence line. High clearance recommended for this last section.

Western Slopes, Class 2

Pass through the gate in the fence line and continue following the now nearly invisible two track west until you reach a small, dammed pond. From this point the open western slopes rise above the pond. There is no right or wrong way, just pick your line and go up.
