We had a family reunion at the Brianhead lodge and simply walked up to the summit of this easy peak. Nearby Cedar Breaks Nat'l Monument really makes this a great area and worth a visit.
Did it again on Aug 16th, 2006, with my son who had not visited the top nor experienced the view. That oversight was corrected on our trip to get the county highpoints of Kane and Washington counties.
I was in the area to do the Rattlesnake Creek / Ashdown Gorge hike and all of the rim hikes around Cedar Breaks. I thought I might as well go to the highest point while I'm there. There is a paved road nearby so this makes it an easy mountain to climb.
Fall, a few years ago, new to the west, I looked through my AAA atlas & noted an 11,307-ft peak called Brian Head Peak not too far from Vegas.
Driving up there to about 11,000 feet, I hiked to the top via the trail/cross-country combo from the northeast, then drove home, checking out Cedar Breaks on the way.
