Danish Knoll is one of several short tree-covered knolls on the high flats of the Wasatch Plateau. Each is easily hiked within an hour and make for nice family outings from Skyline Drive. 

Getting There

Take State Road 31 (Ephraim Canyon Road) east from Ephraim 8-9 miles and turn right (south) on Skyline Drive and drive 1.3 miles before taking a left (southeast). Continue for another mile to the saddle west of Danish Knoll. 


From the typically muddy saddle, hike straight for the peak up the ATV trail. Veer to the south of the trees until an opening is found to the summit area. 
Round-trip Distance: 0.9 miles
Elevation Gain: 161 feet

Red Tape

US Forest Service manages this area. No permit is required. You can park near the restrooms in the southern part of the campground without any trouble. Practice "Leave No Trace" ethics. 

When to Climb

Year-round though a snowmobile, skis, and/or snowshoes would be extremely helpful in winter.


Lake Hill Campground is halfway between Skyline Drive and Ephraim. There are other undeveloped pullouts in the area.
