Peak 5952 anchors the south end if the Donkey Hills. It is three feet shorter than Donkey Benchmark.


The best access to the southern Donkey Hills is from the Dry Creek Road [(A)(6.1) on 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 onto a 2-track road. Follow the 2-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 sized 4WDs will find it too narrow in spots.

Northwest Ridge, Class 2
