Monument PeakMonument Peak is the highpoint of Carbon County at 10,452'.
Getting there is too easy - a long dirt road takes you to the summit. A passenger car could get most of the way, if not the entire way if the road is dry. (It would be pretty hairy even in 4WD if it is wet).
Getting ThereAccording to the book 'High in Utah' -
Just southeast of Soldier Summit on U.S. highway 6 between Spanish Fork and Price, turn west onto Utah Highway 96.
Drive to Scofield and continue past the town.
About 4 miles before reaching Clear Creek, take a right on Utah highway 31/264.
Drive to the county line and take a left, heading south.
Drive 5.2 miles and take a left at a junction in the road marked by a sign describing a gate in 300 feet.
Continue for 2.7 miles and take another left, which is a hairpin turn of sorts, cutting back north to the summit.
As far as I know, there is no hiking trail up to the summit.
Red TapeThere are some areas off the road that are posted No Trespassing.
CampingWest of Electric Lake is Flat Canyon Campground. It has restrooms and drinking water, and charges a fee.
External LinksI will post pictures as soon as I get copies. I lost my camera sometime after 'bagging' this peak.
