Does anyone have a Lone Peak GPS track?

Postby youngdoc » Wed May 06, 2015 2:41 pm

I'm planning to hike up to the summit of Lone Peak in June and I am not familiar with the area. I have reviewed a bunch of sites and trip logs and I'm running into the following issues:

(1) there are multiple route options (Jacobs Ladder, Bear Canyon, etc.), but some of these trails/trail heads have either been renamed or may have multiple names (e.g., http://climb-utah.com/WM/lonepeak.htm)

(2) access to some trail heads seems to depend upon whether certain back country roads are accessible at the time, which throws off the directions a little

(3) the GPS tracks that I have been able to find online (e.g, here http://alltrails.com/trail/us/utah/lone ... obs-ladder, among other places) seem to come with a healthy dose of "we made a wrong turn and wound up on a different trail" or "we never reached the summit..."

I carry a GPS of my own and I am happy to do some route-finding, but I think that I might be better off having someone else's track to fall back on, especially if it's provided by someone who has done this hike a few times.

Many thanks.

There is a great excel spreadsheet that you can download from the WMC that has basic information on many of the routes/hikes in the central Wasatch area. There is a tab called DownloadFiles that has links to GPS and Google Earth files as well that you could use. There are several Lone Peak routes with GPS links and files there.

Good luck!
