This was my first trip up this mountain. Great views at the top. The wild flowers along the way were spectacular. I've never seen so much greenery in Utah before.

We took Right Fork Maple Canyon. Contrary to what the Uinta NF ranger told me earlier in the week, the Maple Canyon road was NOT closed at the water tank; we were able to drive all the way up the canyon and park past the camp ground.

There was snow on most of the upper half of the trail, but it was a couple weeks old, so it was hard and we didn't need any snow shoes. I brought crampons and an ax because I didn't know what the snow conditions would be like, but it turns out that neither was necessary.

Maple Canyon Lake was totally frozen over with about four inches of ice.

10 miles round trip, 4600 feet of elevation gain, 4:35 to the summit, 3:00 back down.

March 6, 2010 - Route Climbed: Crowd Ridge. The snow was crusted and punchy with sugar under the crust so we had to use snowshoes for the majority of the climb. Bit windy on the ridge, and foggy from the false summit to the true summit but the fog burned off a few mintues after we summitted. Took 5 hours 40 minutes to ascend.

A hot day to do this hike but as a result I pretty much had the mountain to myself. I did meet two others who were returning from the summit as I was heading up. Tremendous views and a long hike of 12 miles and close to 5000 feet of elevation gain by the time all was said and done. Probably close to 90 on the summit. I needed all the water I carried, 4 liters.

Up to two feet of snow in some places along the trail made for a long hike, but the weather and scenery made up for it.

This was the third time that I've climbed the mountain. It is a tough hike, in my opinion, tougher than Timp and Nebo. Although part of the reason is that each time I've hiked it I have started in the late afternoon. I need to hike this one sometime in the early morning.

climbed this one with my brother, Eric. Took a swim in Maple Canyon Lake and enjoyed perfect weather on the summit. My 1963 VW bus' tranny broke while crossing Right Fork of Maple Canyon Creek on the way home - had to get a tow home.

I had the mountain to myself. I tricky mix of mud, slush, and hard packed snow made the trip interesting. Nice views thanks to the recent snow and fall colors.

Crowd Ridge is a good winter route.

It's a long hike, not nearly as scenic as Timp or Nebo, but worth doing at least once.
