Sturgill Peak is the highest point in the Hitt Mountains and the fifteenth most-prominent Idaho summit with 3,449 feet of rise. The peak’s summit is accessible via a rough road. Most high-clearance vehicles will be able to use this road when it is dry.
Drive US-95 10.0 miles north of Weiser and then turn onto FS-600. The summit is 16.5 miles away. The road follows Mann Creek into the forest before climbing steeply to a saddle south of the lookout. Although the peak has a road to the top, its summit is still a great destination with fabulous views. The road is not busy and serves as a good hiking or mountain biking route. Class 1.
