First peak of the hiking season. Was great to see the Oquirrh Mtn. Range. I had no idea how beautiful these mountains are.

This was my first "real" hike in a few years. I'm newly married, and mostly out of shape. This was a tough one for me. The weather was iffy, there were pouring rainstorms and intimidating thunder storms surrounding us the majority of the hike. We lucked out and never got hit with it. The trail was shoddy, at best, and very frustrating at times. It was very rewarding, however. The views were spectacular! A very interesting location, which I knew almost nothing about. Very glad I did it, and will hopefully come back later in life. Loved it.

Happy to say the road to the saddle is open, though very rough. Also no one has descrebed "Val's trail" which switches back through the forest before meeting up with lewiston ridge at a small saddle. Lot's of very old tree carvings here (almost all before 80's many from early 1900's, one from 1907! Lot's of helicopter activity and landing on the ridges, fresh tire tracks from them in the snow on both lewiston and flat top. What is with the doorbell on the solar shed on flat top? that is eery, is there like a tunnel that goes down below that because there is absolutely no use for a doorbell for a shed that small. Weird.

Very warm day, more like September than december, very clear with views from logan to Uintahs, entire wasatch front, Mine camp peak, Ibapah, moroni, Wheeler peak (maybe even North schell? not sure but very far away, further than wheeler but to the north.) Pilot and the raft river range and everything in between. Fabulous, fog in the salt flats down low in the morning gave the appearance of islands to all the small ranges to the west.

The South Fork Road was blocked at its start 1.2 miles past Ophir. Did a great climb loop trip climbing Porphyry Hill, Peak 8790, Lewiston, Flat Top, "East Flat Top" 10,340, and Peak 9925. Dropped down 9925 NW Ridge in perfect snowshoing conditions. Thats 5 ranked summits and Lewiston in 9.5 hours, 6300 gain, 14 miles RT.

Climbed from Ophir and traversed Mt. Lewiston ridge. We made a stop on top of Mt. Lewiston while we were at it. A very nice day.

South Fork Road is blocked at the first creek crossing. I hiked from there. Saw a herd of 100 elk near the summit.

Climbed Lewiston Peak via West Ridge, Ophir Canyon. Stopped short of Flat Top due to time constraints. Having a high clearance vehicle would've helped considerably, as we had to walk the road three miles each way just to reach the pass at 8,060 feet on Lewiston's ridge.

This climb was done in marginal weather, very cool and wet for early September. It wound up being the first of eight 5000-foot prominence peaks in eight days, five in Utah and three in Nevada. The other seven in order were Nebo, Ibapah, Deseret, and Timanogos in Utah, followed by Wheeler, North Schell, and Star in Nevada. Fun trip!

Early season, the West Canyon gate was open, and we were allowed to pass. We climbed the peak, with lots of snow. We didn't bring snowshoes and this slowed us down.



I like the Oquirrh's, but unfortunately, the range has some significant private property issues. Luckily, this is about the only range in Utah that has many private property issues.

DeanHalls Basin - Sept 4, 2004

Four of us climbed this peak in the midst of a thunderstorm, waiting out the worst part of the storm before we continued on. We were snowed on, hailed on and rained on and when we reached the summit we were mainly in the clouds. Some days you take what you can get. I climbed this with Bob Bolton, Adam Helman and my son Brad. On our descent via Halls Basin, we had a run in with a landowner and almost ended up dealing with the sheriff. Don't go via Halls Basin, go over Lewiston and then back over Lewiston.
