Elevation: 7,561 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 7561 is found in the Boise National Forest, east of Archie Mountain. The peak has a broad summit highlighted by a beautiful meadow. The peak is only a short climb from FS-312. USGS Jackson Peak
Park on the northwest side of the peak where FS-312 crosses a pass at approximately the 7065 elevation point (see topo). The slopes of Peak 7561 were logged many years ago, but a dense forest has regrown.
Northwest Slopes, Class 2
My route followed the remnants of a debris-filled skid road for about two-thirds of the total distance. Albeit and eaxy climb, you will need good route finding skills to stay on track in the forest, especially on the return. A compass or GPS is recommended for those who are directionally challenged.
My one way stats: 0.75 miles with 450 feet of gain.
To access the peak by road use the Graham GS Road. [(B)(2.1)]. From Boise, take ID-21 for 55 miles to the turn for FS-384 at the signed Edna Creek CG turn. Turn onto the excellent FS-384 gravel road and follow it to FS-312 in 4 miles. FS-312 is a good road but not recommended for passenger vehicles. It is roughly 9 miles to the pass. However, if you get to the signed junction with FS-598 Jackson Peak road, you have gone to far.
