Spirit Peak Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A cross-country day hike to the summit of 5, 635-foot Spirit Peak, the highest peak in the Newberry Mountains. Although the summit can be reached in many different ways, this is the most direct route. From the parking area, go generally north, angling up the east-facing talus slope toward the last of the granite outcrops on the skyline above.
Stay below the steepest terrain near the top of the ridge until you ’re nearly to the northernmost visible outcrop, then climb an easy gully just to the south of this last outcrop. The top of the ridge is broad and gentle when you reach it, with pleasant little basins."
