Use BLM route to access Massacre, see driving directions on the main page below. DO NOT TRESPASS ON PRIVATE 'SHORT CUT' FARM ROADS!! The land owners are asking climbers be respectful and not trespass on their private property.
The land owners are monitoring their farm roads and are asking climbers not to trespass and turn around. There is concern about liability, near misses at high speeds on the farm roads, and disruption of hunting on the cedar mound on their property. When using the BLM access route, there is a short section of private land between the two metal gates that is also being monitored by the land owner for trespassing. Fortunately, there is an option to avoid this stretch and avoid using the two metal gates. Adjacent to the first metal gate, there is a barb wire gate separating BLM land from Idaho State public land. Go through the gate (close it behind you) and follow an indistinct 2 track road through the sagebrush until you can join the regular road past the second gate. It is less than 1/2 mile. The two track road needs traffic and some sagebrush cut down but in time it will be fine and have no more off road obstacles than the rest of the road.
