This peak is not in the book.


Roberts Mountain is located northeast of Lake Pend Oreille at the northernmost extension of the Bitterroot Mountains. Its prominence is its claim to fame. A lookout stood on the summit from 1928 to 1958. USGS Smith Mountain

Access

Access this peak from Troy, Montana and US-2. From Troy, follow Callahan Creek Road/FS-427 west for 12.0 miles to the trailhead for FST-407 (3,480 feet). The Forest Service states: “Trailhead is on the right and can be hard to find – look for tread on upslope of road.”

FST-407, Class 1+

This trail ascends the peak’s South Ridge, climbing over Point 6647 along the way. The most recent information I have found (2014) on this trail probably justifies calling an ascent up this trail as Class 2. Be prepared for cross-country travel. The round-trip distance is over 8.0 miles and requires 3,200 feet of elevation gain.
