Took all the kids on this one. Nice easy stroll from the road below.
A very easy county highpoint as advertised. Had a little difficulty finding the actual highpoint in the meadow. Had to resort to the GPS, but eventually found the cairn. No summit register in the PVC tube
Took all the kids up. They made it no problem. great time with everyone.
Up with my dad and a bunch of friends
Climbed from Swan Flat Road during a 2-hour break from a family reunion at Bear Lake.
Climbed this with my daughter, Heidi, my son-in-law, Rick, and their little baby, Ivy, who was one month and 17 days old. Ivy didn't do much climbing except as a passenger in the blanket-covererd baby Bjorn, but she may be the youngest person ever to visit the summit cairn on Bridger Peak. I took us - and we were not hurrying - about one hour to reach the top. There was a summit register but it lacked a cap and there was no writing instrument, either. I was glad to have loaded the summit coordinates into my GPS; using the GoTo feature was extremely helpful in finding the top in spite of 30 minutes of bushwhacking. Hiked this again on 8-15-08 and didn't have to use GPS to find the summit. Solo this time, it took 29 minutes to reach the summit cairn and 20 minutes to come down. #3 8-17-10 w/ Rick. Quick trip up and down, of course. :)
Fun early morning hike with my mom and wife during vacation at Bear Lake. Saw a moose and fought swarms of mosquitos. Quick and easy and worth the trip.
After hiking Naomi in the morning, my wife and I tackled this in the afternoon. It was plenty warm with valley temps in the mid-90's. Great views of Bear Lake!
There were five kids ranging from 7 to 16 that bagged this peak with five adults.
What a great hike, even though it is the lowest in elevation of all of the Utah County Highpoints
After the short hike to Bridger I decided I had time left in the day for Swan Peak to the south. The view from the peak here is amazing...much better than Bridger. So anybody else that is chasing highpoints and does Bridger you might as well tack on Swan because trust me it is worth it.
I wasn't too excited to do this hike, but it proved me wrong. Bridger Peak is in a beautiful area, the hike itself took me 50 minutes, fast hikers could do it in half an hour probably. After leaving the trail to bushwack there are many nice campsites if you want to do a short little backpacking trip with the family. Make sure you head north after leaving the trail, and there you will find the summit cairn.
We had just climbed Naomi Peak and had driven close to Bridger Peak. My wife was debating whether to join me on this hike, and she finally decided to make the hike after some internal debate... thus setting the tone for her to also finish the UT county highpoints.
Good way to start a week of peaks. Now onto Borah!
Great view of Bear Lake from the summit. Beautiful Day. Trail looked like herds of dear and elk had been using it regularly.
I headed toward Logan to try and escape from the hot weather down south. I climbed up the trail to the ridge and then followed it north through the trees. Ended up wandering around for a while looking for the highpoint and finally saw the large cairn on the summit. It was a clear day and I could see all of the mountains and Bear Lake below.
