I finally added Hoyt Peak to SP. I've been holding it off since it is very hill like, but what-the-hey.

Oh, Scott, that's because you drove all the way up Paulsen to get up there :) From any other direction, it's a very decent mountain with a grandest view. Relatively popular in winter, too, more often from Swift Creek with the direct access to the powder of its North-East Bowl. Unfortunately I don't have any photographs from any of those trips.

Only once I drove that road. I've also climbed from Swifts Canyon/White Pine. The hill reference was due to the rounded forested nature. A nice hike for sure so it has a home now. In fall the area is especially beautiful.

Any updated info on access to Swift Creek? There used to be some private land issues, but I avoided them by wading the river. Sound cold in winter, but any updated info is much welcome.

Never been a problem in winter, knock on wood. Once we went from South Fk Weber River, climbing over the first gate on your right. But driving over the next bridge downstream (Pine Valley? Pine something for sure), and turning left (upstream) after the bridge, is almost always a better option. There is no public parking along this one-lane road, so one has to be prepared to shovel some on the roadside, but often there are pullouts left from other skiers or shoers.
