OverviewThis is the second highest point of the southern portion of the Wasatch Plateau after Heliotrope Mountain. Though almost 100 feet higher than Mary's Nipple, it is often overlooked because it is further removed from the valley below, and thus, appears less prominent. It rises 1,500 feet above the saddle with Mary's Nipple and 700 feet above the beautiful Island Lake to the northeast.

FR 0290 - This is definitely a 4WD road forabout 6.6 miles until it joins Skyline Drive on the bench. The crux of thedrive is after Woods Lake where a steep muddy section makes it difficult topass, which makes the route from Salina or FR 0022, preferable.
FR 0022 – Better maintained dirt road thatveers northeast a small amount to Skyline Drive at Twelve Mile Flat Campground.This may take longer than FR 0290 but the risk of getting stuck is aconsiderably less. Turn south on Skyline Drive and drive for 5.8 miles to the4-way intersection near Island Lake Peak.
