Access

The best access to the southern Donkey Hills is from the Dry Creek Road [(A)(6.1) Page 290]. Follow the Dry Creek Road west to its junction with the Burnt Creek/Long Creek Road (partially signed in 2020). Turn north onto the Burnt Creek/Long Creek, cross Dry Creek and almost immediately turn right/east on to a two track. Follow the two track east to a junction with a 4WD road/ATV track that climbs up the unnamed drainage that descends from the Donkey Hills crest to Dry Creek. See map below. This road is one of the most difficult routes to drive in the area. The higher you drive, the more difficult the terrain. Full size 4WDs will find it too narrow in spots. This route covers  5.0 miles and gains 1,700 feet.

North Ridge, Class 2

From the road’s end on the saddle hike west to the base of the north ridge. Proceed up the ridge to tree line. At this point a wide game trail is visible. Follow the game trail up and across the peak’s eastern slopes. Once past the trees turn west and climb to peak’s large, dome-shaped, bald summit.

My GPS track in green. This route covers 2.0 miles with 900 feet of gain round trip.
