A nice easy hike for once, wanted to go over to Perkins Peak but I had to get down for work in time. Maybe next week.

Some of the climbs were so steep! Nice views from the top, although a bit dusty from the winds

This reminds me of stuff and things that go up and down, pick your favorite one. The trail goes up and down until it just goes up! The views at the top are rather beautiful of the Millcreek ridge. I'd do it again if I was going to do it again.

Hoppy Easter! This ridge goes up and down and doesn't even care. The last steep push to the false summit is the crux of the climb. I think I counted 1000 steps to get up it. It gives good views all round. I would definitely recommend it to a friend...or an enemy.

Duc and I had nothing to do so we went for a walk along the ridge to the summit of this peak. It was muddier than expected.

Fun ridge! I like rolling trails, so this was nice. A bit too much scrub oak, though. I can't imagine how much of a treat THAT will be come summer!

2/23/2014 From the Little Mountain Summit trailhead. From the trailhead I did Little Mountain first, and then onto Dale Peak, and all the way to Perkins Peak. I had to come back and do it again since I didn't get to Perkins last time. Fun hike.
2/2/2014 From the Little Mountain Summit trailhead. Fun snowshoe but a little slow going. Was planning on heading over to Perkins Peak but wouldn't have been back in time for the Superbowl. I will be back to do Perkins.

Climbed this enroute to Perkins Peak. got a late start so the snow was in bad shape. left the trailhead around 3:00 and called for a ride on Foothill Drive around 10:30 fun ridge hike all the way except for bad snow and awful amounts of scrub oak

WisemtnNot so Fun Jeep Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2010
Didn't start until 6:30 so I ran most of the way until it got too steep. Made it up in under an hour and returned (got dark on the way back). Didn't really care for the trail b/c it was mostly a jeep road...

Made it up again on the way to Perkins Peak on 10/2/10.

Hiked from Little Mountain Summit. Great snow on the way up. Very sloppy and hot on those south facing slopes on the way down.

Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2010


Hiked this today because the avalanche danger was too high throughout the wasatch, so I played it safe with dale peak.

seanpeckhamon the way to Perkins and back  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 25, 2009


used Vibram Five Fingers and ran as much of the ridge as i could; the bushwhacking slowed us down and it took 3 or 4 hours to do the 9 miles roundtrip.

we saw hunters too; when they asked if i'd seen any deer, i said no, but my wife is on the trail too, so don't shoot her. if i had seen a deer i would certainly not have told him so. glad to have been wearing bright colors.

Looking for something that wasn't going to get rained on, I chose this for a conditioner and soon found that there were a lot of folks in orange with rifles on this mountain. I had orange on as well but no rifle, just my trekking poles. I enjoyed the hike and got off before the rain hit.

Update: I've since been up this one several more times. Once with Kadee, once with Victor Zhou and a couple times by myself. I still need to get Perkins peak.

The original plan was to climb Mount Timpanogos, the second highest mountain in the Wasatch Mountains and one of the most beautiful mountains in the Rockies. Unfortunately conditions were not ideal since a snowstorm 1-2 days prior dropped over a foot of snow in the high Wasatch.

Because of the snowy conditions up high, we set our sights on the much easier and lower Dale Peak, a minor summit in the Wasatch. Kessler, Shaylee, Kimberly and my father joined me for the climb. Some cousins of the children were supposed to come to, but they decided not to go.

We chose the East Ridge route to the summit. It was a pretty easy route and steep in places, but most of the trail was good although the upper part is slightly overgrown. The entire climb was under cloudy skies.

After enjoying the views while eating lunch at the summit, we headed down. We got back just in time since on the drive home there was some very light rain.

I climbed this peak on the way to Perkins Peak in the mid 1990's.
