Access

A combination of two roads, the Dry Gulch Road [(D)(2) page 243] and the Walker Way Road parallel US-93 through the northern Boulder Mountains. The two roads meet at the crossing of Road Creek at an elevation of 7530. Walker Way continues west at this point and eventually reaches the East Fork Salmon River. The Walker Way Road leaves the Trail Creek Road [(B) page 242] 4.7 miles west of US-93. The Dry Gulch Road leaves US-93 18.2 miles south of the US-93/ID-75 junction. For Peak 7442 follow this road system until you east of the peak. Turn west onto a two track and drive as far as you can toward the peak. See map below.

A 4WD two track leads from the Walker Way to an irrigation canal northeast of the summit. From this point, make the easy crossing of the canal and climb southwest to the summit. Round trip is 0.7 miles with 488 feet of gain.
