Boulder Point ranks as one of the Bitterroots’ most underrated day hikes. This steep route is in generally good repair, with only a few downed trees and a poorly defined segment atop School Point to confuse the issue. Use is light—decidedly less than many other trail-accessible Bitterroot peaks. From the barricaded terminus of Barn Draw Road, the trail sets out with the former roadbed underfoot, contours across Barn Draw, and turns southeast below 5,559-foot School Point. The misdirection is only temporary, however, and soon a steep ascent ensues as you double back to follow an abandoned jeep trail northwest across the bald shoulder and gain the ridgeline atop School Point.
