Route Description for Kepros Mountain Trail
The Kepros Mountain Trail is a strenuous and impressively scenic trek that will surely put your navigational skill and stamina to the test. The exposed climb is consistent and tireless, so it is wise to pack plenty of water, wear SPF, and dress in layers as insurance against changing conditions. Additionally, the route is not well signposted and hard to follow, so use the trail GPS for easy navigation. Don’t forget your camera; the scenery is postcard-perfect.
Embark on your adventure up Kepros Mountain from the trailhead off Blacks Creek Road. Setting out from here, you will be guided northwestwardly up the flanks of Three Point Mountain. From here, you will gain the northern ridge. Now wandering north, the route will alternate through bitterbrush and bunches of arrowleaf balsamroot. As you climb, take the time to admire the beauty and grandeur of the mountainous landscape that stretches for as far as the eye can see.
Continuing along the northern ridge, the path will dip down toward Birch Creek before arduously ascending up to the summit of Kepros Mountain. The views from atop the peak will leave you speechless. Enjoy distant views of the rugged Sawtooth Mountain and the nearby Boise Mountains. After resting and rehydrating, retrace your steps back to the Trailhead.
