A beautiful sunny day with snow pack on much of the trail kept me nice and cool for the hike. Appropriate that I climbed Squaw peak today as my Broncos lost to the Kansas City Squaws :(

Nice hike. Also did Buffalo Peak on the way down. A bit of a bushwhack on that one.

Great weather for this time of year. It was smooth sailing on the packed-down snow. Rock Canyon is really cool!

Fun trip - didn't summit but considered it a successful trip - climbed 2/3 up by obscure way and repelled down with friends. Light snow -Awesome!

#1 11-22-14 Nicely groomed trail nearly all the way to the pointy summit which offers sweeping views of Utah County. Ich werde diese Stelle wieder besuchen, glaube ich. Tolle Gesellschaft, muss ich gestehen. #2 7-28-15 W/ Brent. Nice morning but IVD.

Started early, missed the rain. Beautiful views. Via Rock Canyon. Next time I will tag on Buffalo Mountain. But it looked like rain so we scurried down.

This was my fourth time climbing the peak, a relatively shorter hike that is extremely rewarding for the awesome geology, beautiful stream, dense forest, nice meadows and really good view from the top. And after much fear and trembling (the most nervous hike of my life) I successfully proposed on top. We then went straight down the steep west face of the mountain, and then, as the sun set, covered with dirt and filth and with ripped jeans, we walked into Jared's to get the ring resized.

I spent years of my life living with the Nez Pearce in Idaho and find the name of this mountain a disgrace. I think they should rename it to Squawk Peak for all the Ravens that were trying to take my organic peanut butter and kale salad from me.

Are the following on your wish list? Stunning cliffs and rock formations? Rushing stream of ice cold water? A wide range of flora and fauna. Evergreens and shade? Beautiful meadows, check. Stunning views of 11,000 foot peaks, lakes, and over 2000 foot cliff drop off? Well if none of this tickles your fancy then stay far away from this gorgeous peak and climb. Rock Canyon may have more mileage, but the hike is worth every step to the top!

Have done this several times, first time in the winter. Almost no snow on the Rock Canyon trail up to the Squaw Peak trail but snow or ice on the trail almost all the way up on the Squaw Peak trail.

Up Rock Canyon with Craig Lloyd and NateY. We ran about 3/4 of the way up and hit the top in just over an hour. What a view! This is a must do for anyone living in the area.

bmhansenFirst Friday Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2012


Went from the Rock Canyon trailhead at 6:00 am. Made it to the summit in about an hour and twenty min. Spent some time enjoying the views along the way and especially from the top.

Got back to the cars in about 3 hours from the start so I was at work by about 9:30 or so that day.

A fun and quick summit this close to town is great to have!

The actual date here is a total guess, but the month and year are accurate. We did the hike in fairly good time, which is good since a storm blew in as we started to descend. We ran most of the way down the mountain back to the cars, creating an unforgettable night. The views from the top were spectacular though, especially in early evening when we were there.

We managed to climb it in the late afternoon, in about 4 hours. The trail was packed down, so snowshoes weren't necessary. Great views on top! The snow covered clearings near the top are neat.

Dean9th time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2012


Now I've done it 9 times, five times so far in 2013. Such an excellent conditioner so close to home with good mileage and elevation gain that it keeps calling me back.

Update 9-15-12 Did this with my son Brad who had never hiked this one before. I was testing my ankle that had been injured about three weeks earlier and it did fine. Up and down in 4 1/2 hours. Not overly fast but at my age and recovering from an ankle problem, good enough. Besides, it was my birthday hike and the 2nd time I've done this one on my birthday. : )

12-14-13 Total snow hike with Greg and Kadee and their dog Oq'r. Trail was nicely packed down and snowshoes not required but the temps outside hovered in the 20 degree range most of the time we were on the trail. Fortunately no wind and we met another summitpost member at the summit.

I jogged up to the summit in a few minutes and then went down the rock slide to hit the squaw peak trail. It took a bit to get there, but it was lovely; lots of birds and such. I bushwacked my way back up to get the trail back to the road and it was pretty terrible, but still fun! I got covered in spider webs.

Via Rock Canyon and First Left Fork. Also bushwhacked up to "Buffalo Peak" (8020) which is NNE of Squaw. Not much snow and what there was was nicely packed down.
