At the summit, turn onto FS-374 which runs north along a ridge system to the lookout. This road will require a high clearance vehicle. It is rougly 3.0 miles to the western slopes of Peak 7,057. (Sorry, I forgot to note the distance on my odometer.)

Northwest Ridge, Class 1+

There is a 4WD road that climbs up the northwestern slopes to the summit in 0.5 miles. You can also choose to climb the peak via a game trail that leaves the main road from a saddle on the north side of the peak. There are good views from the bald summit, especially of Shafer Buttte.
