Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 152-153 of the book. Be advised that Google Maps directions for the Three Point Mountain Trailhead will take you to the wrong place. Updated March 2020


Three Point Mountain is at the southern end of the long North-South ridge anchored by Kepros Mountain in the north. Kepros Mountain is one of the popular Grand Slam Peaks. As a result, a lot of people combine an ascent of this peak as part of the trek to Kepros Mountain. This is an easy summit to grab early in the year. USGS Arrowrock Dam

Getting There

From I-84, use Exit 64 east of Boise. From the exit, take the well-paved road north through rolling hill country. Keep left at the only paved fork (which has signs for stores in Prairie, Idaho). Continue on this road, which soon turns to gravel, to Black Creek Pass, 9 miles from I-84. A large parking area is located on the East Side of the pass and the trail starts on the West Side.

North Ridge, Class 2

From the trailhead, follow the trail west as it climbs up to the peak’s North Ridge. Turn south and follow the north ridge to the summit. The first section of trail is steep but easy to follow. Once on the North Ridge the trail fades out. Be sure to visit all three summits.
