Access

The peak is best accessed from the Burgdorf/French Creek road [(B)(2.3)(a) pages 135-136 in Idaho A Climbing Guide]. The best trail option from this road is Forest Service Trail (FST) 144, which leads from the Burgdorf/French Creek road to the Bear Pete Mountain trail, FST-142, along the southern slopes of Pete Creek Peak.

John Platt followed FST-144 until he could access the western slopes. He ascended from that point to the summit and then descended the peak’s east ridge to the trail. See John’s GPS track below and use the link further below to read his trip report.
