Access

South Fork Salmon River Road [(C)(1.1) on Page 139]. The trailhead is roughly a mile north of the Penny Spring Campground. Turn right and cross the bridge. The signed trail is exactly where it is shown on the map. Note: there are a lot of roads in this area and, in Summer conditions, you could drive much closer to the summit.
