Peak 8716 (Spike Peak)

Elevation: 8,716 ft

This peak is not in the book.


This peak is the high point of the Freeman Ridge portion of the Pruess Range which in turn is part of the Peale Mountains.

The following is Rick Baugher’s trip notes: On 10/20/01 midway through a multiple peak day, I dirt biked east over 7630′ Freeman Pass, then continued south on this Forest Service Road #145. Parked near Hill Spring, 7900′.

From this vicinity it was an easy cross country hike, ascending west, to ‘Spike Peak’ 8716/946′. On top, noted a surveyors spike driven into the cherty limestone summit outcrop.

View to south slope of Spike Peak on 7/20/14. A spike or rebar stake is sometimes suggestive of a privately conducted mineral or timber survey. Rick Baugher Photo
