The highest point on Box Ridge is called Hibox Mountain. Hibox is known as a good scramble with a bit of rock at the top, class 3. It's quite popular and has a bootpath to the top in summer. There are two important points on Box Ridge, Lobox Mountain at 6,032, and Hibox Mountain at 6,547 feet.

Washington Hiking & Climbing

Washington Hiking
The Rachel Lake Trail starts across the road to the north of the parking area. Follow this trail for nearly 2 miles to the first avalanche clearing. Cross the clearing, going back into the forest. About 150 feet into the woods search for the Hibox bootpath on the right. Other reports say the path is in the trees after the second avalanche chute crossing. (I don't remember which it is, just keep an eye out, you'll see it). The bootpath is easy to follow going up, basically going straight up to the ridge, steep in places but class 2. The trail will come out of the forest, ascending to the right at the first cliffs, then left around a rock outcrop. Just follow the bootpath as it passes through some timber reaching the second set of cliffs. A gully to the right goes through, then an upward climb to the summit area. Go to the right, along the south side of the rock heading east until a reasonable gully is reached on the east side. Go up the gulley, plan on a bit of class 3 rock at the end.

From the west, take I-90 east to exit 62 (signed "Kachess Lake"). Turn left from the exit ramp and drive northeast on Kachess Lake Road (Forest Road 49) toward Kachess Lake. Follow the signs to Lake Kachess Campground. Turn left on FR 4930, which leads about 4 miles to a large parking lot and the trailhead at the road's end.
