OverviewSouth Willow Peak is the second highest peak in the Stansbury Mountains next to Deseret Peak. As far as I know the name is not an official one, at least it isn't named on maps, but South Willow Peak seems to be the name known by the local folks. Ericwillhite in his write up about the Stansbury Mountains says the people at the Wasatch Mountain Club have an unofficial name for it also, never the less the peak is often overlooked because of it's more daunting neighbor, yet ironically it is sometimes mistaken for Deseret Peak. It also has a sister peak north of it known as North Willow Peak,a few feet lower at 10521 Ft.
Getting ThereThe trail head is at the top of South Willow Road where there is available free parking if you're not camping. You can get to South Willow Road, which is mostly a dirt road (warning: it can be closed during winter months from October thru April according to Icarreau) that heads west for about 7 miles, from a road that spans between Rush Valley and Grantsville. It's north 14 miles from Rush Valley or about 5 or 6 miles south from Grantsville.
Red tape? I don't know of any other than the usual camping fees.
There are several camp grounds along the South Willow road, the main one being a loop camp ground at the head of the road.
