Camped the night before at Elkhorn CG. What a nice CG. The hike was extremely easy and it is amazing how wide open the plateau was. Would like to go back and climb Geyser and Hens Hole Peaks

I climbed this peak circa June 1992 from near the Elkhorn Campground.

trucha101Old story

I hiked up from Snow Lake and had the whole mountain to myself as far as I could tell. No vehicles beyond Elkhorn and saw nobody on top. There was some haze in all directions because of fires but this was one day before the Twitchell Canyon fire flared up. Here's the old story. When I first moved to Utah to stay back in 1980 my neighbor was George Eckersly who was then 95 years old. He was born in 1885 in Loa. His father was the President of the local LDS stake. In those days LDS apostles visited most of the Stake Conferences and when George was a teen(he didn't say exactly how old)the visitor was James E. Talmage who besides being an apostle was also a geologist.
James asked if they could go up to the top of Flat Top(Thousand Lake Mtn.), so they got horses and camp gear and headed up for a few days. One morning before breakfast George noticed that Talmage had walked out into the meadow and was kneeling down. George walked out to see if he was OK. When he approaced, Talmage turned and said to George "This is the original surface of the earth that Adam and Eve walked upon". Talmage didn't elaborate further and George didn't ask for more explanation. I don't know what it all means but I have been facinated with Thousand Lake Mtn. ever since and I finally made it to the top.

Camped at Elkhorn CG, hiked up from Snow Lake, which is shorter than going up on the Deer Creek Lake trail. Park just off the main road, right at a fence line, rather than trying to take your vehicle around the north end of Snow Lake. The TH is around on the NW side of Snow Lake, marked with a wooden sign. The trail is little-used but fairly easy to follow all the way up to Flat Top. We then cut cross-country headed generally SW until we found the summit knoll. Thanks to Dean for leaving the trail register. Our afternoon was cloudless and stunning, with views all the way to the LaSals in the east. The hike far exceeded my expectations, and I will come back and hike this one again.

My wife and I made the summit just before a thunder storm hit. We took a different way back, cross country in the trees to avoid going through any open areas. We were totally soaked by the time we got back to the car. Trip report at http://www.willhiteweb.com/fish_lake_national_forest/thousand_lakes/mountain_051.htm

This peak was very interesting. The song "Wide Open Spaces" comes to mind when I remember standing in the huge bare areas on the way to the summit. The summit was a nice suprise since I didn't know if it was going to be easy to find with all the flat area.

My son in law and i camped at Elkhorn campground (nice) and enjoyed our hike to the top of this interesting high plateau area. A mailbox adorns the summit and is located above the benchmark. A resident marmot has adorned the area with a lot of droppings so watch your step.
