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.
South Ridge. Class 2
There was no register on the summit, only 6-foot plus cairns. Climb the peak from the saddle on its South Ridge which is reached from Trinity Mountain Road. If you want more of a challenge, it looks like routes will go on its North Ridge or West Face.
