Access

Primary access to this peak is from the Deer Creek Pass Road, FS-279 which in turn can be reached from the Wet Creek/Pass Creek Road [(A)(5) Page 289] in the north or the Deer Creek Road, FS-277 in the south. FS-527 leaves the Deer Creek Pass Road roughly 0.5 miles southeast of Deer Creek Pass. Follow this road south until you reach an unmapped road that leads east to a saddle below Fawn Peak’s south face. This is 4WD country.

South Face, Class 2

The peak’s south face is a quick scramble from the road’s end. All you have to do is zig and zag through mountain mahogany and ascend 300 feet. There is a nice view from the top and, surprisingly, cell phone coverage.
