Ascent Trip ReportI drove up this with Dean. From Arco go west on Hwy 93, cross the signed Big Lost River bridge (the bridge is neither Big, nor Lost, and can hardly be considered a River) and zero your odometer. At 0.4 turnleft on paved signed 3100W road, at 1.3 the pavement ends go straight, at 4.6 cross a cattle guard, at 4.9 take the left fork towards the Fingers Butte Well. At 14.3 miles take the left fork on the Big Southern Butte Road, at 18.0 take the left fork, at 21.0 cross a cattel guard, and at 24.3 reach a ranch and head for the butte and canyon that is obvious. At 25.5 there is a flat spot on the right where Dean parked his truck and joined me on the ride up to the summit. At 27.3 there is a hang glider waring sign, and at 29.1 we reached the summit. Fantastic views.
