Miko, Nala and I drove the road up Spring City Canyon. When we hit Skyline Drive the road was extremely rutted and I decided I would rather hike than take a chance. We gained the ridge and went over North Tent Mountain and then on to South Tent Mountain. On the way back we went back over North Tent. This put our journey at 6.0 miles gaining 1546 vertical. Fun day.

Following Skyline Drive heading north we reached impassible snow drifts in the road at a pass at around 10,880 feet. We parked here and hiked the road about 3 miles to the base of North Tent. In the process we lost about 500' of elevation. We then hiked up the open slopes to North Tent before following the ridge to South Tent. On our descent we angled under North Tent, to avoid climbing it again, and worked our way back to Skyline Drive, and back to my truck. This was my third CoHP today and fourth in the past two days.

Snowshoed up from about 7800' on the road from Spring City, without too much postholing. Trip report.

Deceded to camp on the nice flat summit of North Tent on a perfectly still night and then had a liesurely stroll to South Tent in the morning. Outstanding sunrise!

I should have worn more leg protection as this was all bushwhacking. It was a very pretty area and I enjoyed looking at the wild flowers. I'm hoping to get a book to help me identify them next year. Being from Arizona, I not familiar with Utah flora.

Heat, humidity, bushwhacking and flies made this one kind of a miserable slog. Beautiful area though.

Went up the saddle between North and South peaks and then proceeded to the top of South Tent. Nice area. In retrospect, I would have went up North Tent first and followed the ridge...likely would've been much easier than all the cross country bushwacking we had to do. Shocked that there is really no trail or marker for the Sanpete County high point!

Climbed North Tent from the North Ridge from Skyline Drive. Continued along the saddle to South Tent. Took the same route back. Much better without fog!

Climbed the mountain from the south side of the saddle. Reached the summit as the fog of an approaching blizzard set in. Got lost on the north side in Black Canyon, thinking I was still on the south side at the head of Canal Canyon. Had to make an emergency shelter of pine boughs to keep me and Rocky (my dog) warm for the night. Sanpete County Search and Rescue found me the next afternoon.

Took the Ephraim Canyon Road to Skyline Drive. This road is now in excellent shape and is much better than the road from Spring City. The section of Skyline Drive to the base of N Tent was only marginally rutted and for the most part was pretty good and was way better than the section from the top of the Spring City Road to the base of N Tent which looked too rutted for our lowly Subaru when we viewed it last week. However, once things unfroze, it was mud city and we now own the world's dirtiest car. Last week my husband used a snow shovel to get the mud off of our driveway. Tonight he said it was too dark so I guess I see how bad it is tomorrow.

For the hike itself, we went over N Tent to S Tent, back to the saddle, descended to the SW, and then traversed around the base of N Tent back to the car.

This makes UT CoHP #6 for me. Spring City to skyline Friday afternoon. Skyline drive had some really bad mud spots North of the Tents and I parked and tried to summit. I only made it about 20 minutes up the side of N. Tent before the sun started setting because of the extra hour walk. I turned around and went back and slept in the truck. Next morning the mud was frozen over so I made it to the base of N. Tent driving. Walked to the base of the saddle and went up a gully. Hit South first. Then North. Came back down the slope of North. Great beautiful fall morning hike. Took skyline south to the Orangeville turnoff and made it to East Mt. in Emery Co. and summited later in the afternoon. 2 Utah CoHP in 1 day. =)

I spent much of my youth in these mountains, but never hiked South Tent. Hit both of them and enjoyed some elk down below.

Climbed to the saddle between north and south tent. Did both peaks. Very easy climb and the views were very nice. Road down Spring City canyon was very dusty but in good shape. Looks like the forest service is in the process of fixing the road

One thing for sure: descriptions of "how to get there" in the two books about Utah County highpoints are grossly out of date. No sign in Spring City, no sign pointing to South Tent Mountain. I found it by asking campers. Interesting markers on top, though.

I'll add some details on the comments section re: the road, etc. This is one of those long drive and short hike COHP trips but the views and terrain are nice.
