Ascent Trip Report

The map shows that Bucks Peak is located about 0.5 miles northeast of this peak. The summit register, which was placed in 1979, calls this peak Dave's Peak; also, there is a plaque on top honoring a local cowboy whose first name is Dave. I recommend a 4 x vehicle into the trailhead although a high clearance vehicles should be able to make it. Trip stats and GPS includes an ascent of Dave's Peak.
