OverviewMount Naomi Wilderness Area. Because of its position in front of the range's main crest it obscures the view of higher peaks behind it like Mt. Jardine and Mt. Elmer. It get's its name from its most obvious feature, its nearly perfectly flat top. However, it is not officially named on the USGS quad. Regardless of the mountain's level summit it is still a very rugged peak and requires a 7 mile (round trip) hike with about 4,500 ft. of gain.
The view from the top is amazing and takes in almost the entire Bear River Range as well as the Wellsvilles across the valley, the Northern Wasatch Range, and the Bannock Range in Idaho.
An exciting feature about this mountain is that it can be climbed in conjunction with at least one other peak in the Bear River Range. The summit of Flat Top is less than a mile north of Mt. Jardine and it is a quick and easy hike between the two. There is also the possibility of climbing Mt. Elmer in conjunction with these two peaks as its summit is only about a mile northeast of Mt. Jardine.
It is also possible to approach the peak via Smithfield Canyon north of the peak but it is a much longer route.
Red TapeFlat Top is located in the Mt. Naomi Wilderness Area so there is no motorized travel allowed.
Bring plenty of water as there is very little to be had along the trail. Red Ledge Spring usually has some but be prepared in case everything is dry.
