Ascent Trip ReportAs Dean Gaudet pointed out in his 08-28-2017 trip report, Google Map will take you to the trailhead; however, it offers several route options, only one of which actually works, and for me the route options kept changing the further I drove in. I was very confused, and drove many extra miles up the wrong road before I finally figured it out and made it to the trailhead. The basic driving directions are as follows: from Oakley, Idaho drive east on Main Street about 1 mile, then turn south on Birch Creek Road and drive about 12 miles, then turn east on City of Rocks Road/Emery Canyon Road (sign says City of Rocks Natural Reserve/National Forest Access) and drive about 1.4 miles, then turn north onto Logger Springs Road (sign says Logger Springs Road/National Forest Access) and take the main road about 9.2 miles to the end (signs along the way say Forest Road 562). The forest road requires a high clearance vehicle once past the campground and the last two miles requires a capable 4x. I parked about 0.4 miles prior to the trailhead because of snow. Also, the route up to the peak was a snow climb starting at about 10000' in elevation; fortunately, the snow did not require crampons because the slope was gradual and the snow was slightly soft.
