Elevation gain: 200m
Time: 1 hour one-way
Access: Any vehicle
Season: late June to October
Map: 82E/1 Grand Forks
Drive: From the Nancy Green Junction, drive west on Hwy 3 to Bonanza Pass, about 4kms before the Paulson cut-off road. Turn left (south) and drive on Bonanza Creek FSR 12kms to just below the Mt St Thomas.
Route: An hour to the summit with a large 800W solar array with communications equipment. There was a profusion of wild flowers and nice views towards Old Glory. Take a slightly different route back to avoid a steep rock bluff climbed on the ascent.
