Peak 8010 is a ridgeline summit that is located on the east side of Smoky Canyon in the Webster Range. It is the high point on a ridge with multiple points of almost-equal height. Peak 8010 is the southernmost of the ridge points. Regrettably, this beautiful ridgeline is off limits to the public due to the [active] Smoky Canyon Phosphate Mining Operation that has completely reshaped the mountain’s slopes (see photos).

Park in a large parking area on the south side of Smoky Canyon Road just up from the signed junction of Smoky Canyon Road/FSR-110 and the Smoky Canyon Phosphate Mining Road (7,235 feet).
When the phosphate mining operation concludes, this area will once again be open to the public. To reach the summit, hike (or drive) south on a mining road from the 7,196-foot road junction with Smoky Canyon Road/FSR-110 to reach the northwest side of the peak. Follow mining roads up to the ridge crest and hike a short distance south to the summit.
