Parked along the South Fork Dixie Creek just off Mormon Basin Road. No fences or "no trespassing" signs visible to the north from here. Started directly up the steep slope to the north, jumped an unposted fence higher, and followed jeep trails then cross country. Drifted too far east on the ascent, but encountered no signs that way. Passing drivers seemed cordial where I parked.
Hike in from Mormon Basin Rd. Round trip was 9.5 miles which wasn't so bad. It definitely wasn't a memorable one, but worth it you're working on the P2K list. Snow was gone and it was an easy bushwhack. A little spooky coming across hunting cabins in the middle of nowhere on private property. Glad to have this one off my back.
completed the Eastern Oregon P2k's. Time to debate whether to work on finishing the state or expanding east into Idaho. Hiked up from Mormon Basin Road, route listed on this page is now gated. Followed this up with an evening summit of Sturgill Peak just across the border in Idaho.
A cold wet snowy day in early June with Dean. Great hiking weather.
In the wee hours of a sunday morning, Dennis and I found our way to the summit of this mountain after driving a 4WD road. It was then a 4 mile walk to get to the summit.
