Snowshoed up on Valentine's day. Its about 2.5 miles to the highpoint from the road. The temperature was in the 50s, and the snow was really wet and heavy. The main road is groomed as part of the Deer Valley Winter recreation area so there is no trail breaking until you get to FS1642. Fortunately most of the snow seemed to support my weight. I only ended up in wet snow up to my knees a couple times.

I wasn't able to find the cairn in the snow but I stomped around the area enough that I'm sure I hit the high point.

This is a relatively easy winter ascent. Snowshoeing the main road is pretty easy and the trailbreaking up to the high point is not difficult.

I'm impressed how much effort people put into sawing and moving logs to avoid a one mile hike. Trip Report

Found this after some wandering with the help of good GPS coordinates. Hit Andy Nelson Peak and Brian Head earlier in the day.

Had to saw down some fallen trees on the road to drive within 1 mile of the peak. Had the GPS coordinates loaded and still had to do some significant searching in the woods until we found the rock pile. Seemed almost like geocaching

Tried all 3 different roads on Dean's map to get here. We first tried the recommended one but it was blocked by a downed tree. Then we tried the one in the middle but it was blocked by a downed tree too. On our third attempt we thought we were going to make it all the way by the most northern road as we saw many newly sawed logs across the road. But, alas, we came upon a downed tree this way too, but, after knocking off a few branches, we were able to drive under it with it scraping our roof rack. However, just after making the turn at waypoint 1, that road was blocked too, so we got out and walked.

My GPS died on me, so I had to do a little searching but eventually found the highpoint, though it is a bit difficult due to it just being a topographical line. A lot like Wasatch county's highpoint.

Found the cairn without aid of GPS, thanks to great directions from others who post here. Camped near the cairn, and then climbed Andy Nelson Peak the next morning just to be sure we had gotten Kane.

My wife accompanied me on this one. I was bound and determined to find the register; so, after searching a while and THEN learning to set the proper datum and output format on my GPS, we finally found the cairn and the pill bottle. As I signed the register, and I explained to my wife who Gerry Roach was and what he has climbed, I noticed I was not impressing her. Oh, well!

The aspens are almost too thick for vehicle travel once you turn off Deer Valley Rd, and the 4wd road is quite rough. Everything was smokey from the nearby wildfires.

I did this one between thunder and lightning storms that swept the area. I waited about 1/2 hour for one to clear the area before getting out of my truck. I still got wet from the brush.

After my son and I had visited Brian Head, the county highpoint of Iron county, we headed over to do this one. It took us less than an hour including a visit we made to the "overlook". From here we went to a campground near St. George so we could do Signal Mtn the next day. I love the colors in this part of Utah.
