Downed trees, but still a cakewalk  Sucess!

My wife and I were camped on the Markagunt Plateau for a couple of weeks so I decided to snag some high points in the area. There were some downed trees about 0.6 miles before the high point, but it was still an easy walk there and back along the road. After visiting the high point I walked south toward the rim hoping for a nice view but the trees mostly blocked it.

Used a compass to find it  Sucess!

Followed 265.9 bearing on my Silva compass from the monument road where the roading going 296 degrees crosses it. Adjust the bearing for declination and walked right to it. Easy Peezy!! :)

Kane COHP  Sucess!

Not a fan of liners but this one is easy.

That was Easy  Sucess!

Much longer than it was supposed to be because of fallen trees. It was really beautiful forest in the snow. Still need to go try the tallest peak in Kane County, but the high point was a nice walk in the snow.

I'm yelling timber!  Sucess!

Quickly upon turning on the Deer Valley road we ran upon downed trees and huge snow drifts. We parked our car and took off on a 1.5 mile long hike each way to the high point. The number of downed trees on the Marathon Trail was too numerous to count. There was still lots of snow everywhere. We followed G.P.S. directions and figured close enough. Never found the carin, but that may have to do with all the snow still feet deep.

Kane  Sucess!

It had rained for several days and dirt roads were muddy and wet. Still a short hike no matter where you park.

Treasure Hunt for Sure  Sucess!

This took longer than climbing to the top of Andy Nelson Peak. But fun. IVD

Kane CoHP  Sucess!

Along with Jobe Wymore via Marathon Road. Hiked up the remaining 2 miles due to the road being blocked by downed trees.

snowshoes  Sucess!

Snowshoed up on Valentine's day. Its about 2.5 miles to the highpoint from the road. The temperature was in the 50s, and the snow was really wet and heavy. The main road is groomed as part of the Deer Valley Winter recreation area so there is no trail breaking until you get to FS1642. Fortunately most of the snow seemed to support my weight. I only ended up in wet snow up to my knees a couple times.

I wasn't able to find the cairn in the snow but I stomped around the area enough that I'm sure I hit the high point.

This is a relatively easy winter ascent. Snowshoeing the main road is pretty easy and the trailbreaking up to the high point is not difficult.

GPS guided  Sucess!

I'm impressed how much effort people put into sawing and moving logs to avoid a one mile hike. Trip Report

1st of 8 in a day.  Sucess!

Took forever moving branches and dead logs to be able to drive up Marathon Road. Camped near the the highpoint used a GPS to find it at midnight.

Hooray GPS!  Sucess!

Found this after some wandering with the help of good GPS coordinates. Hit Andy Nelson Peak and Brian Head earlier in the day.

Hard to find  Sucess!

Had to saw down some fallen trees on the road to drive within 1 mile of the peak. Had the GPS coordinates loaded and still had to do some significant searching in the woods until we found the rock pile. Seemed almost like geocaching

Almost didn't make it  Sucess!

Tried all 3 different roads on Dean's map to get here. We first tried the recommended one but it was blocked by a downed tree. Then we tried the one in the middle but it was blocked by a downed tree too. On our third attempt we thought we were going to make it all the way by the most northern road as we saw many newly sawed logs across the road. But, alas, we came upon a downed tree this way too, but, after knocking off a few branches, we were able to drive under it with it scraping our roof rack. However, just after making the turn at waypoint 1, that road was blocked too, so we got out and walked.

Fun Trip  Sucess!

GRadded this one on our 5 highpoint trip bagging Brian Head, Andy Nelson and CoHP, Bluebell Knoll, Fish Lake Hightop and Monument Peak.

Easy  Sucess!

My GPS died on me, so I had to do a little searching but eventually found the highpoint, though it is a bit difficult due to it just being a topographical line. A lot like Wasatch county's highpoint.


rharris - Jul 10, 2009 1:25 pm Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007

Found It!  Sucess!

Found the cairn without aid of GPS, thanks to great directions from others who post here. Camped near the cairn, and then climbed Andy Nelson Peak the next morning just to be sure we had gotten Kane.

Sunset  Sucess!

Managed to summit this about 15 mins before sunset. Navajo Lake was outstanding.
