Fun day hike, I lost the trail in one of the many snow drifts and took a little detour to the saddle. Awesome views of Mt. Nebo 50+ miles away. And more Mormon crickets then I have ever seen in my life. If you do this hike some time before mid July An Ice Axe is well worth the added weight.

Very Fun. The route is very straight forward, moderate, and unexposed. Once on the ridge it was windy all the way to the summit and back, minus a few spots of shelter along the way.

Super hike with awesome views. Found out you can see many Wasatch range peaks (like Lone Peak and Timp) from there. Very enjoyable.

See Dean's comments below. Indeed a very enjoyable hike and summit. It was my fourth 5000-foot prominence peak in as many days, on my way to eight in eight days.

Myself, 3 dogs and a friend had a great climb. Nice to see many valleys from atop. Looked at the peaks in the Wasatch Range and were inspired. Beautiful day hiking the loop.

Bob Bolton and I had a perfect weather day for this one and saw only one other person on the trail. Clear views in all directions. This is a sweet hike, very enjoyable and now one of my favorites. We spent almost two hours on the summit, just soaking everything in.

A nice easy hike, but poor summit views on this day due to haze.

Wildlife spotted:

• Tarantulas: 1

• Mormon Crickets: ±5,000,000

I'd like to go back, it's been awhile. Wild country, lots o' animals, great scenery! Started to do the loop hike, but did some scree scrambling below the face, looking for a shortcut. Awesome hike though!

Made a couple of ascents of this peak, but haven't yet done full loop. A nice option to the often crowded Wasatch. Great views, enjoyable hike.
