This summit is accessed from Highway 20 in the Island Park area whether coming from the north or the south. The road west you take is marked as Antelope Flats Road and has a large historical marker at the entrance. This is a dirt/gravel road. On Memroial Day weekend torrential rain washed out a lot of the road. UTV/ATV, or 4wheel drive is highly recommendEd. You will pass one major intersection, but you just go straight. This road leads to the flats of course (don't take any of the side roads), where you will reach a “Y” intersection with signs. You go right and are at the base of the mountain and on Bishop Mountain road which leads to the top. 

The top is home to an old fire watchtower and has a cabin and a few structures and picnic tables at the top. Lots of trees only a few glimpses of good views. There is a benchmark in the center under the tower, but is fenced and locked.

This area is in the center of a dense grizzly bear landscape so always be "bear aware".
