Lots of "Private Property" and "No Trespassing" signs everywhere, so I sought out and found the property owners. They are a nice couple and have owned most of the peak for the past 40 years. They get "lots of requests" for permission to climb the peak and don't have a problem with hikers as long as you ask permission first.

They don't take kindly to trespassers. Their house has a great view of the entire south side of the peak, so they can probably see anyone heading up without permission. Their house is the second driveway on the right (south) side of Egypt Loop Road if starting from the west end where it intersects Highway 25. The driveway starts at WGS84 datum (47.88649 N, 118.23620 W) and winds 0.6 mile up to their house.

They also own the nearby rock crushing business on the north side of Egypt Loop Road (look for a big blue shed), so you might also find them there. This driveway is at WGS84 datum (47.88883 N, 118.23474 W).

No trouble walking the rough roads up to the summit. Nice views of nearby Lake Roosevelt.
