This Smoky Mountain peak is not in the book. USGS Galena
I parked at the Owl Creek turnout (same as for Easley Peak) and forded the Wood River. If attempting it during Winter, there may be a snow bridge but I did this peak in late November. I headed west along Owl Creek Road for about a half-mile before turning south to gain the ridge to the summit. There are quite a few trees but there is not much bushwhacking.
The summit has nice views of the Boulder and Smoky Mountains. There was a cairn on top. The total round-trip distance is approximately five miles with 2,300 feet of elevation gain. Despite this peak being so close to the highway, it is not visited much as I was the first on Lists of John to record an ascent. The slopes are tree-covered so it is not a good ski destination, which may explain why there are few visitors to this peak. In the Summer, Peak 9489 is overshadowed by taller peaks.
