Climbed from bottom of South Fork Road to Lewiston, then over to Flat Top, and also to peak 10340 (East Flat Top). One of my favorite mountains!

Started at the trailhead and bagged Lewiston as well. 11 Mile RT in 6 hours 45 minutes with 4,027 ft. of gain. Only had to deal with a few snow drifts on the North side of Lewiston. The route finding was surprisingly easy. Great view too!

Drove to the saddle, then took the left fork of the trail, which I lost in the slushy woods. Went straight up the open slope north of the forest, then down the right fork of the trail from the ridge. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2013

runbyu's directions proved pretty good. We drove part of the way up in my FJ cruiser and stopped at 7600ft. One could drive all the way to the saddle at 8000ft with an ATV but there are huge ruts that would deter most full size 4WD. From the saddle we managed to lose the trail periodically partially due to it going through scrub oak and partly due to 3-4 inches of fresh snow from the day prior. The "new" trail on the north side of the subpeak was nice. There are new summit register notepads now and I was a little honored to sign in right after the inimitable Gerry and Jennifer Roach. Good views for sure. We were able to follow the trail quite a bit better on the way down.

BritaLeat Favorite Mountain Part 2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013

This part coming over from Lewiston Peak actually was not that bad. It was a nice ridge run that I may have enjoyed had I not been so cranky after all the bushwhacking up the mountain and worried about the incoming storm. My comment once we got to the top was "this is...flat." I honestly didn't realize what I was saying until after I'd said it. Suddenly the name made sense. From far away I didn't think it really looked flat but compared to other summits I've been to it really was flat. I wasn't overwhelmed by the views but did enjoying looking back at the Oquirrs and finding out car in the parking lot.

runbyu1Summit register is FULL - July 2013 Route Up Flat Top and Lewiston  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2013

We made the drive out to Ophir, which was a super cool little town and started up South Fork Road around 3pm. Once we got to the saddle and turned off the road, it was mostly bad trail and cross country from there but we made it up to Lewiston and then over to Flat Top. The summit register is full, so if someone sees this, they may want to take a new one up to the summit. We were only the 7th people to have signed the register this year! We got chased off the top by a Thunderstorm but made it out just fine only getting wet. The new route around the North ridge from 9600 down to 9000 is great and kept us in the trees and out of the rain and lightning. There seem to have been a bunch of changes on the mountain since the last information was posted so I put up a trip report titled 'July 2013 Update - How to get to Flat Top and Lewiston' so that people would have a comprehensive source for getting to the top of these peaks.

This is a tough mountain slogging through snow; even with snowshoes. Anyway, I decided to climb up this mountain in a storm, and it was probably in the negative on top...especially with the wind chill. I spent 5 minutes; made a short vid, took some pics and was gone. Plunge step for the win!

Hiked from the new trail head parking lot near the beginning of South Ophir Canyon up the ATV trail to the Mercur overlook and then took the trial up to just below Lewiston Peak. Hiked up the ridge to Lewiston and over to Flat top. 4 hours 10 min total from car to flat top. 3700 ft elevation from car to flat top. Perfectly clear and sunny day. Great views.

This was my third trip to the Oquirrhs for skiing/peak-bagging, and the first time there was no whiteout on the summit. I was very glad to finally see the incredible views.

Climbed from the main saddle at 8000 feet up South Fork Canyon. Pretty straightforward climb to Lewiston and then a ridge walk over to Flat Top. The drive was the worst part. Ended up doing $400 of damage to the underbody of my ford getting hung up on a boulder in South Fork canyon

Second climb on 6/4/2012. The road up south fork canyon is still in bad shape

I climbed Lewiston and Flat Top today with very low visibility. Not too much snow yet, maybe a foot or a little more up high. Flat Top probably received 4 inches or so today while I was up there.

I've started my list of Ultra peaks now. This was a magnificent peak. Definitely know why they call it Flat Top. And I had it all to myself! I didn't see a single other person the entire day. It was a gorgeous day with light winds from the south. It was warm and I was in a t-shirt all day. Absolutely perfect day!

Hiked this one with my 18-year old son. Spur of the moment decision. Tougher than I expected. Beautiful day for a hike though. 2.5 hours up and 1.5 hours down. Hiked from 8,100-foot elevation trailhead that originates from road out of Ophir Canyon. We were the second set of signatures in the logbook for the day. See summit log of Mr. Winters below ;-).

Drove up South Fork from Ophir to 8,060 ft and the trailhead. Ascended to the west ridge and contoured on Lewiston Peak's northwest slopes to the summit. Ran into a herd of elk on the ridge. Returned via Lewiston Peak's summit on down the west ridge adding about 0.3 miles to the roundtrip 6.8 miles.
