OverviewPioneer Peak is the highest of a cluster of 10,000-foot peaks in the northern portion of the Pahvant Mountains in Central Utah. The network of dirt roads in the are make access to this peak rather easy, as well as the hike. As with much of the Pahvant Mountains, wildflowers are in major abundance.
Take highway 50 that runs between Scipio andSevier Valley (towns of Salina, Aurora, Redmond). Approximately 5 miles out ofthe Sevier Valley, then turn west and drive along Forest Road 102. It meandersup a canyon and gains the main backbone of the range after several miles. Mostpassenger vehicles can make it up this road. The road that travels north-southin the range is Forest Road 96. Turn right (north) onto this road. The firstpeak encountered is Willow Creek Peak, but the second is the taller Jacks Peak.From the western slope of Jack’s Peak, drive straight west to the Pioneer Peakas far as you can (<1 mile).
