Wolf Mountain

Elevation: 8,876 ft
Prominence: 896

Climbing and access information for this peak is found on pages 146 to 147. Additional information below.


Wolf Mountain is more like a Sawtooth Mountain summit than most Boise Mountains peaks. While it 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 route in the book is accessed from the river bottom just north of the peak. The road climbs out of the Crooked River drainage to yet another pass and at the base of Peak 8498. Dave Pahlas climbed the peak from this pass via a nice ridge walk that is not in the book that starts by climbing over Peak 8498. Use the link below to access Dave’s trip report.
