This is the distinct triangular northern peak of the Henry Mountains that is actually the second highest in the range rising 500 feet above the saddle with the slightly taller North Summit Ridge of Mount Ellen directly south.

Getting There

The trailhead is at Bull Creek Pass, which is the same starting point for Mount Ellen.


Continue north from the summit of Mount Ellen's North Summit Ridge. You will lose 500 feet of elevation before regaining most of it to reach the summit of Mount Ellen Peak.

From Mount Ellen North Summit Ridge

When to Climb

Spring-Fall are the best times. Winter will be quite a long trek/adventure.


McMillan Campground on the west side. Lonesome Beaver Campground on the east side. Both offer a handful of campsites with a minimal BLM fee.
