To access this peak, use the Warm Lake/Landmark/Stanley Road (FS-22/579), which runs across the Salmon River Mountains between ID-55 and ID-21, to reach Landmark, Idaho [(C)(1) on Page 138]. The town of Landmark is no longer in existence but there is a large airstrip just north of the road. Leave Landmark on FS-477/Burnt Log Road [(C)(1.4) on Page 140]. Follow Burnt Log Road north for just over 4.0 miles to the signed junction for Artillery Dome Road/FS-477E (not discussed in the book). Turn right and follow this 4WD road east to Peak 8681.
