Access and Route, Class 1+
FS-344 climbs from Elk Summit and FS-340 nearly to the top of Peak 9101. Elk Summit is accessed from the Big Creek Area and FS-340 [(B)(3.2) on Page 137]. The road ends just short of the summit at a small electronics installation. The actual summit is just east of the building and is roughly 10 feet higher.
Traveling through this area of the Salmon River Mountains requires a high-clearance vehicle with good tires at a minimum. These roads traverse burned areas and there is a high probability of encountering downed trees on the road. Taking a chainsaw is not a bad idea.
