This dome-shaped, northern Boulder Mountains peak towers over US-93. It sits south-southwest of its taller neighbor, Anderson Peak. Although a minor summit, the views of the Lost River Range and the Pahsimeroi Mountains are incredible. USGS Dickey Peak
Primary access is via Walker Way Road. This occasionally-graded road cuts through this section of the Boulder Mountains from Trail Creek Road to the south to US-93 to the north. Walker Way Road is a well-engineered, narrow route that varies in quality but is, for the most part, in good condition. Nevertheless, a high-clearance vehicle is recommended.
If approaching from the south, Trail Creek Road leaves US-93 16.0 miles north of Mackay, Idaho. Follow it west for 4.7 miles. Turn right/north onto Peck Canyon/Walker Way Road. Follow this road north and then northeast for 11.7 miles. The unsigned and unmapped 4WD road begins at this spot.
If approaching from the north, follow US-93 south from the US-93/ID-75 junction for 18.2 miles and turn right/west onto [signed] Dry Gulch Road. See also [(D)(2) Page 243]. Follow this road (which soon becomes Walker Way Road) southwest and then west for 7.2 miles. The unsigned and unmapped 4WD road begins at this spot.
Southwest Face, Class 2
A 4WD road leads from Walker Way Road to the southwest face and the summit ridge. This road serves as a good trail. Once it ends southeast of the high point, it is a short, Class 2 stroll to the summit cairn. The distance from Walker Way Road is 1.1 miles with 430 feet of elevation gain.
