Elevation: 7,869 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 146 of the book.
This peak is a popular ascent in the Winter for both skiers and snowshoers. The parking lot on ID-21 at Mores Creek Summit fills up quickly on Winter weekends and is also used by snowmobilers. Fortunately, the snowmobiles go north toward Pilot Peak for the most part. It is just under 10.0 miles and 2,100 feet to the summit if you follow the road. On a recent trip to the top, my GPS watch showed a total elevation gain of 2,254 feet adding in the uphill on the way back. A lot of the higher slopes on the east side of the peak burned recently, but not along the road. USGS Sunset Mountain
In the Summer, the rough road sees little vehicle use and is great for a mountain bike ascent. The lookout is staffed during fire season.
