This summit is directly north across the township of Lava Hot Springs ID. located on state land. This summit is located above the Lava Hot Springs Idaho hot pools. It is a short 2 mile round trip hike. Sometimes snowshoes may not be needed but are nice to have just in case. This is mostly a bushwhack hike. After this hike enjoy the Hot Springs for a nice soak.

You can either hike from Lava Hot Springs or drive a short distance crossing highway 30 from the main exit into Lava and park next to the RR tracks near  42.622500,-112.011667.

You will cross the tracks and bushwhack apporximately 0.5 miles up a steep ridge until you reach a switchback road that leads to a outbuilding which is used to house fireworks for the 4th of July celebration. Keep going on the switchback North towards the summit a couple hundred yards and then take a right and bushwhack again along a ridge to the summit approx. another 0.5 miles.
