Elevation: 9,037 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 149 of the book.
Peak 9037 sits west of Fiddlers Perch and Trinity Mountain. It is easily climbed from almost any line, since the Trinity Mountain Road [(E)(2.2)(c) on Page 155] crosses its South and East Slopes at one point only 600 vertical feet below the summit. USGS Trinity Mountain
Featherville, Idaho Access. At the south end of Featherville, turn onto FSR-172 which is signed for Trinity Lakes. Follow FSR-172 for 15 miles to its junction with FSR-129, Trinity Ridge Road. FSR-129 is the Trinity Ridge Road. Turn left/south and follow the road past the various Trinity Lakes and then to the pass between Trinity Mountain and Peak 9037 in 5.0 miles. At the pass turn left onto a rough road that leads east for 0.25 miles to the closed gate. There is parking for up to four vehicles near the gate. These road do get regular maintenance and I have spotted passengers cars on them. Nevertheless, the quality and steepness vary and they can be quite rough in places. A high clearance vehicle with AT tires is recommended. The road above the lakes requires a 4WD.
Southern Access. FSR-129, Trinity Ridge Road [(E)(2.2) Page 155] leads up from Anderson Ranch Reservoir to the pass between Trinity Mountain and Peak 9037. It is a rough road that is often in need of major repairs. A 4WD is required.
East Ridge, Class 2
I scrambled up the peak’s East Ridge from the road, which was a short 600-foot, 0.35- mile hike.
I also recommend climbing the peak from the saddle between it and Peak 8554. This saddle can be reached via a trail that leaves Trinity Mountain Road roughly 1.0 mile below the East Ridge. In 2014, the trailhead was not signed but it’s easy to find. It leaves the road at a sharp switchback by a big tree and is shown on both the USGS quadrangle and the Boise National Forest Map. The saddle is 0.5 miles away. USGS Trinity Mountain
