What a most interesting peak. The terraces look like a huge amphitheater. Are they ledges that one could hike across? Thanks for sharing.

To my knowledge, they were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s-1940s to prevent erosion. They can be seen in other areas of the Wasatch Mountains as well. The terraces could be used to hike across if you want to.

Here is a Photo by SP member aprovance showing the terraces on Shingle Mill Peak looking toward Freedom Peak farther south.
