The views were pretty great from the summit. Easy little hike, up and back in under 45 minutes.

The first part was rocky, and we saw a girl and her dog. And we kind of got muddy. There was barely any snow. The second time a week later, it was cool we made it. It was fun to see the triangle structure again. We got muddy again. It was windy, my hat blew off.

I worked 14+ hours the day before and felt compelled to get some fresh air. This was a great after-work hike. I had the mountain to myself most of the time, though I did run into a local teenager who said he'd seen the triangulation structure at the summit and just wondered what was up there.

I could run up every morning from my house to stay in shape but I'm too lazy. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/draper_utah/view_benchmark_066.htm

Made for a great two-family, 2 and a half hour outing on a Saturday. Hiked this with my wife and four kids and with Carrie Powell and her four youngest kids. Beautiful day - snow was melting fast, snowy and muddy in places, but not too bad. Great views!

This peak has one of the best views in the Wasatch. On a clear day you can see from Mt. Nebo to Ben Lomond and everything in between. I frequently do training runs up this mountain from various trailheads in Draper that give me 8-10 miles with 1600-2000 vert.

I decided to jump on the bandwagon and snowshoe up View Benchmark. It was definitely a hazy shade of winter.

I was headed down to Draper to visit family, so I threw the snowshoes in, knowing that I had a couple of hours free. Had a blast thanks to the great info on the page!

I use this for a conditioner and probably hike it several times a month early in the year. I love this little mountain and have found countless ways to find my way to summit other than the jeep road. Wear long sleeves and pants otherwise the brush can tear you up on some of the routes. Combine a hike over to Steep Mountain near Draper and you can get some decent conditioning in.

In the fall the colors can be fantastic and in winter it makes a nice snowshoe hike. It is practically in the backyard of folks in Lehi, Alpine and Draper.
