Tyee Mountain

Elevation: 8,753 ft
Prominence: 893

Climbing and access information for this peak is found on page 147.


Tyee Mountain is seldom visited despite the fact that there is high elevation access to its slopes via FS-312. While the peak is a long way from a paved road, access is good at least in a relative sense. FS-312, the Graham Road, a long, winding road which eventually leads to the upper reaches of the North Fork Boise River provides the access route. Take ID-21 from Boise for fifty five miles to the turn for FS-384 at the signed Edna Creek CG turn. Turn onto the excellent FS-384 gravel road and follow it to FS-312 in 4.0 miles. FS-312 is a good road but not recommended for passenger vehicles. The main intersections are signed for Graham. The road crosses a pass between Archie Mountain and Peak 7561, continues to another pass and the junction with the Jackson Peak Road and then descends into the upper reaches of the Crooked River. The road climbs out of the Crooked River drainage to yet another pass at the base of Peak 8498. Continue on the road past this peak to the next pass. From this point, you can follow the east to the summit. I have yet to follow the route but it looks to be Class 2. USGS Tyee Mountain
