There are a number of options to access this summit.  It can likely be nearly a drive-up if it is approached from Hwy-278 to the north going south past Road Agent’s Rock.  It may also be accessed from the town of Bannack year-round.  Bannack was originally the territorial capital of Montana and is now a historic ghost-town state park that is well worth visiting.  We accessed the summit by following the dirt road that begins at the Bannack cemetery (off the Bannack Bench Road) northwest of town at the “You are Here” location on the photo map by the cemetery.  The dirt road is well marked and heads north, then east, then south on the Virginia City Stage Road.  We parked where the road is gated on a point above the town of Bannack near the north boundary of the State Park.  One could, alternatively attempt the steep 4wd trail that heads east from this location, but we chose to walk as the road is quite steep.  Other various alternate approach roads are demarked on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge (South) map.
