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

Tracy

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!

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.

Drove in from Richfield, road is long and bumpy. Summited and descended in 40 minutes. Took the Fillmore road down, and I would say it was a scary experience, if you like rough steep jeep trails than you might like it. Views down towards Fillmore are awesome, you can even see Notch Peak very well on clear days.

This was part of a long day trip that netted 7 UT county highpoints. I believe a slept most of the way in as my wife drove the dirt road, and she slept on the way out as we headed south.

Not interested in a long hike, so I drove the ATV road to the saddle and made a short hike from there. A fire was nearby.

Embarassingly, I got pretty sick on the decent. Super strange. I saw a large herd of deer near the summit, and a freshly killed/eaten cow on the hillside below the ridge road. I took the HIU route in Bear Canyon, BTW. Saw no cougars nor bears.

My son in law Andrew was particularly interested in this one since his father grew up in Richfield.
