This peak is not in the book.


Peak 6934 is located just northeast of Scott Butte and southeast of Peak 6980 at the southwest end of the Beaverhead Range. Its accessibility and elevation provide great views of Birch Creek Valley and the east side of the Lemhi Range.

The peak is located on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The motorized use map (no longer available online [2017]) shows a couple ways to reach Peterson Canyon. However, the most obvious on-the-ground access is by Scott Butte Road.

Stay east of the butte on this road and travel north-northeast to a junction with a sign that marks the entrance to Peterson Canyon. Here, an ATV track heads northeast before turning southeast and ascending to a saddle next to point 6806. Either park near the junction, or if you have the appropriate vehicle, continue toward the saddle where you can pull over and park.

Either hike the ATV trail to the point 6806 saddle, or if you can drive to this saddle, park just off the saddle. Then, climb down a few feet before continuing across mellow terrain to the base of the rocky north ridge of Peak 6934. A short scramble to the west of the rocks quickly brings you to the summit.

There is no summit marker, but there is an interesting metal marker near the highest point on the summit.
