PrinceOfNorwayLazy Sunday Drive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2015


Just let it happen. The road was good enough for passenger vehicles from the Richfield side when we went.

The leaves were wonderful and the red rocks were cool too.

Hiked this along with Delano Peak the same day. The hardest part about this mountain is the drive to get there.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2015


We spent two days driving around doing little peaks in the area. On the first day we did 9412, 9220, 9500, Rock Springs, 8730, Hans Ridge, South Ridge, and White Pine. On the second day we did Mine Camp, Sand Rock Ridge, Sunset, Leavitts, and 8744 which was the hardest of the lot. A lot of the first day was spent sitting in the car waiting for it to stop raining (20% chance of isolated thunderstorms).

scgrantMine Camp and White Pine  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2014


We approached Mine Camp from Richfield and parked in the pullout by the cattle guard. From there it is a short walk up to the summit. After words I backtracked and drove up to just shy of the summit of White Pine Peak. From there we drove the road to Fillmore. This was Ut CoHP # 5 in the last three days.

Drove up from Aurora along Willow Creek Road. Followed the road along the top of the Pavant. Parked under White Pine Peak, and summited surrounded by golden aspen leaves. Gorgeous day.

This one took forever to drive up to from Fillmore and even longer to drive down to Richfield. The driving took ten times longer than any of the climbing. Also tagged White Pine and Sunset Peaks on the way.

Pfeiffer75Easy Hike   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2010


Drove the road up from Richfield. I feel like I cheated on this county highpoint, but time was of the essence. The road from Richfield was in good shape, however, high clearance is needed to avoid some large rocks and ruts

Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2008


Thunder near but not overhead so we went for it. Another COHP for the kids. Drove up ATV road but out other way to do White Pine Peak, Sunset Peak, Hans Ridge, Peak 9500, Willow Creek Peak, Jacks Peak, Pioneer Peak, Peak 9934, Peak 10,042 and Coffee Peak. After a day and a half doing this, the kids got tired of peakbagging and wanted McDonalds. Map and pics at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah_climbing/pahvant_range/mine_camp_peak_227.htm

rmjwintersFrom Richfield  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2008


We used the SP directions which were great. We found them to be off by a tenth or two here and there, but nothing that provided any confusion. We had to ask permission to park by the cattle guard since a band of bow hunters had "squatted" the land. We received some really odd looks and there was some serious head-shaking going on as we pulled in, put on our boots, hiked Mine Camp and returned within 30 minutes.

rharrisLong drive, short hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


We drove up from Richfield, using the directions and mileposts from the SP site. The road was a good road up from Richfield, not really any problem spots. For some reason, the mileposts were a bit too short (maybe a problem with my odometer), it was a full 18.0 miles (rather than 17.5) from the I-70 underpass on 300 North in Richfield to the cattle guard where the hike begins. There was some kind of ATV rendezvous going on up on top, we must have seen over 100 ATVs, and we had to pull over to let a lot of them pass, making the going kinda slow. From the cattle guard at mile 18, it's a relatively easy stroll down a saddle and back up through an aspen grove to the open area on top. Walk time from cattle guard to summit is about 20 minutes, give or take. There are 2 cairns up there, right next to each other on the summit, and a trail register that doesn't get much use, as the only people who seem to visit this peak are county highpointers. We decided to drive down the Fillmore side rather than return the way we came, and that road is much much worse. It is steep and extremely rocky, with a lot of loose and pointy rocks, and the going was very very slow, no more than 5-10 mph most of the way down. It is doable in a good 4WD vehicle with some guts and high clearance; if you don't have a vehicle like this don't attempt the Fillmore road.

TracyEarly morning hike under a harvest moon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2007


Drove up from the Fillmore side and drove down the Richfield side all before the sun rose. There were some good-sized patches of snow that already had tracks running through them. I hiked to the summit from the cattleguard on the road (down and up - took me 20 minutes one way) under the light of a very bright moon more than an hour before sunrise. This is my 12th Utah County highpoint. Thanks for the good info, Dean!

Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2007


Wow! If you want a steep ascent go from the Fillmore side, but be careful you are going to need fairly high clearance and definitely four wheel drive and a car with guts because this route is relentlessly steep. It was 101 degrees in the valley the day I did it and man I was just praying my car wouldn't overheat. Better view from this side as well.
