Primary access is from ID-75 and Baker Creek Road/ FSR-162 [(A)(4) on Page 213]. Turn onto Baker Creek Road and follow it south for just over 3.0 miles. Just pass the East Fork Campground, turn onto FSR-168/East Fork Baker Creek Road. Follow FSR-168 to the northwest side of Fox Peak and the trailhead for the signed FST-143 which is 11.8 miles from ID-75. This road was in good condition in 2023 and suitable for high clearance vehicles.
Alternatively, you can reach Peak 9120’s north ridge from Fox Peak.
North Ridge, Class 2
From the trailhead hike FST-143 south along the base of Fox Peak to its junction with FST-142. Continue southwest on FST-142 until the trail reaches a point below the saddle between Peak 9210 and Point 9022. (Note that the trail is located higher than shown on the USGS and Forest Service maps. Instead of losing elevation south of the FST-143/142 junction the trail maintains nearly the same elevation. Additionally, the trail numbers on the signs do not match the numbers on the map.) Climb up to the saddle and then head up the peak’s broad north ridge dodging the occasional downfall.
