This peak is located on the main Donkey Hills crest. USGS Short Creek
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.
South Ridge, Class 2
From the saddle south of the peak an ATV trail continues up the peak’s south ridge. Hike this route until it ends and then continue up the gentle south ridge to the summit. It is 1.3 miles from the saddle to the summit with 700 feet of elevation gain.
