sharpaBushwhacking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2014

I hiked up from Clear Creek Campground. I completely lost the trail above 8500' - lots of bushwhacking. The cirque is pretty cool. The summit is sort of a downer and views weren't great due to hazy air. I started to descend via Bull Canyon and quickly lost the trail after the spring shown on the map. I bushwhacked for a while before giving up and heading back the way I came.

7/13/2013 From the Clear Creek Campground. We missed the cutoff trail to the appropriate drainage, therefore we found ourselves bushwhacking through mass undergrowth, deadfall, and stinging nettle to gain the ridge. From the ridge we gained the plateau close to 2 miles before the summit. We found ourselves wondering a bit before we tracked down the summit cairn. Pretty discouraging seeing a road to the top after several hours of miserable hiking. Took a couple summit photos amongst the cattle before returning to our camp.

The route from Clear Creek is amazing! So diverse. The middle portion was incredibly green with ferns and mosses and all sorts of short lush ground cover. Very out of character witht he rest of the area around here that I have seen. The cirque up top was another treat. The viw from the actual highpoint is good, but if you hike a few minutes south you get the expanse of the Salt Flats and the Great Salt Lake. You can see Ibapah in the distance, but what looks so bizarre from this point of view is the reclusive Desert Peak in the Newfoundland range. Extremely isolated. I thought I could make out Spiral Jetty in my monocular. Just wanted to say that Clear creak is the way to go. This was one of my favorite of the Utah county summits as a result and I only have 3 left so that says something. If you are driving to the top that is OK, but maybe you should question yourself as to just why you are doing th e county highpoints in the first place.

This was a nice peak en route tyo a family reunion in Albion ID.

Did this on the scenic route to the Salt Lake airport. Smoke from Nevada made it seem like it was perpetual twilight, but there were lots of wildlife. I'd love to go back when I could actually see more.

4th cohp of the day (3 peaks - but one was a "twofer"). Beautiful summer day.

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2004
Attempted to summit Bull Mountain, had some difficulty losing the trail through the groves below the lake and meadow area. Hiking partner wasn't too excited about route finding (not a big deal for myself but was freaking her out), so I conceded to come back another time to complete the trip.

The western columbines were in blossom along the creak, and I would have to say that it was the most unexpected and perhaps most impressive display of wildflowers that I have ever seen. Hallowed ground for me.

Drove until the snow blocked the road, which left about 2.5 miles each way. Nice hike, but I did get a fair amount of strange looks from hunters that were trying to understand what I was doing, walking my dog up there.

Climbed from Clear Creek CG. After the stream crossing, it was an unpleasant bushwack to the west shoulder. Encountered a thunderstorm on the way down. The cirque was beautiful

Went up from the campground through Lake Fork Drainage. Not a soul on the mountain but me. Had to do a little bushwacking because the trail was sketchy.

I made it to under a hundred feet from the top and i had to leave everything there and push really hard to make it the rest of the way.

I spent the night in Snowville after biking the MS100 in Logan the day before. This was a nice side trip and completes another of the vital CoHP's (more details in the Trip Report).

This was a nice summer hike in a rarely visited area. We came in from the Clear Creek Campground and up the lake fork drainage to the summit. This was a nice hike that we both enjoyed!

I drove to the top of Bull Mtn and got there just as it was getting dark. Not much of a climb, but it counts as another CoHP just like Kings Peak.

My first attempt at this obscure CoHP resulted in (1) embarrassment and (2) failure. On June 24, 2006, I took a young friend who wanted an adventure, and I gave him one by getting lost and returning home without a summit. This attempt was different (saved the embarrassment by going solo!), and I attained the plateau-like summit in spite of the lack of even faint trails over much of the climb. GPS waypoints are wonderful little blessings. If you don't care for bushwhacking through tough, scrubby sage brush, put Bull Mtn at the bottom of your to-do list. :) #2 7-27-13 The trail above the stream crossing (sign Lake Fork Tr. 6004) seemed better this time around. Still quite easy, though, to lose one's way. Some rain und tolle Gesellschaft. Viel Vieh auch.

Bob Bolton and I met in Snowville after I had climbed Bonneville Peak near Pocatello Idaho earlier in the day in a snowstorm. From Snowville, we drove up the northside of Bull Mtn, suffered a flat tire and walked 150 feet to the highpoint. It was nice to make this the second county highpoint of the day but Bonneville Peak had soaked my boots pretty good so I didn't mind the non hike to get this one. Bob and I had a huge agenda for the rest of the week with the likes of Ibapah, Deseret, Nebo, Timpanogos, Flat Top to chase after so this was our only easy effort.
