Peak 7362 is a magnificent ridgeline peak that towers over ID-75 just north of East Fork Road along the Big Wood River. Due to private property, it is no longer accessible from Timber Gulch. The only public access is from BLM land on its east side along ID-75. There is a very narrow strip of private land to cross along the highway (probably Blaine County land) but public access is allowed. USGS Hailey
From ID-75 exactly 1.7 miles north of East Fork Road (and 3.7 miles south of First Street in Ketchum), park at the base of an old 2-track road that follows a fence row west onto the BLM land (5,665 feet). GPS coordinates: 43⁰37’46”N, 114⁰21’23”W.
Northeast Shoulder, Class 2
From the base of the 2-track road, hike a short distance west up the overgrown 2-track road to reach the forest. Leave the road (which ends here anyway) and bushwhack left/south steeply up onto the crest of the northeast shoulder. Climb the very steep scrub (with scattered pines) on the crest of the rounded shoulder, staying in the open scrub just left/southeast of the pine forest. Higher up, the ridge crest becomes forested and the slope eases. Very high up, the shoulder bends left/south in a final push to the open, small summit hump. The high point of Peak 7362 has a summit cairn. The aerial view down to the Big Wood River and ID-75 is stunning.
