Climbers' Access to Sweeney Peak & Pyramid Buttes

The last stretch of ridge before the summit of Sweeney Peak
From Florence, MT drive south on Hwy 93 for about 1.5 miles and turn right (west) onto Sweeney Creek Loop. Where the road turns left (south) after one mile, continue straight (west) for about 0.4 miles on gravel past residences to a junction.

Turn right (north) onto FR 1315 following the signs to Sweeney Creek Ridge Trail. Drive nearly six miles to the end of the road.

There are no restroom facilities. Parking space is limited, so arrive early, especially on weekends. In the winter one can simply drive to the snow-line and park on the side of the road.

For information about the climbers' route accessed from this trailhead, see the link included in the picture's description.
