Great job, Dean. It looks like you had a blast on your trip!

Re: Nice addition

Thank you Courtney. We indeed had a great trip. 5 peaks, and some warmth. The boys did Mormon Peak. Adam will send me the particulars. Bob P. said it was a long day.

Re: Nice addition

Aaah, interesting. I'd be interested in getting the beta from you.

So that's how you do it.

I'd always heard horror stories about bad roads, no directions, etc. I guess it's partially true. Any trouble with locals? Generally in my limited time on the Navajo Nation I have never had a problem about access as long as it's not a highly-sacred place for them. Since Navajo Mountain is, did you come across anyone asking for your story, so to speak?

Nice info. I will be looking at this one maybe in the Fall when the temps cool.

Re: So that's how you do it.

No problems with the locals probably because the road was still blocked by snow up above and several stoppers that will require a cat or something to get the road useable again. One large tree and boulder together about half way up. I know Edward E. just parked at the small airport and walked the whole road. That works for someone who doesn't have a high clearence vehicle. I know others have encountered locals and had no problems.

Re: So that's how you do it.

Hey Dean, finally hiked Navajo. Followed your directions, they were quite accurate. I was here in July and the road seems to be graded, as it was in fine shape all the way up - no "stoppers" like you had in your report. However, it is very steep, and I parked about where you guys did, and hoofed it from there. I might disagree on the mileage - seemed closer to 4 miles than 5 miles each way. Did you GPS the total distance?

A peak very high on my list! Before now, I knew almost nothing about it! Thanks for the pictures. Great job Dean.

Thanks David, I am hopeful that this page will provide people with at least a better understanding of what this mountain is about.

Nice information !

What did the summit area look like, as far as natural vegatation?
I'm guessing there's some Ponderosa pines up there. I have
a photo of Rainbow Bridge from Navajo Mountain, taken by another
photographer several years back. Perhaps I can post and attach to
your Navajo page? Glad you weren't "scared off" by the locals!
Great achievement, Dean!!! - Larry

Re: Nice information !

Lots of forest on top with several different species of trees. Please post your picture, now I wish we'd taken the time to go and look but it'd been a long week and we were ready to head for the "barn" so to speak. Thanks for your comments Larry.

Been waiting awhile

for someone to do this one. Nice page, Dean! I remember my Dad pointing out Navajo Mountain to me on a clear day from up on Boulder Mountain, Utah in the 1970's. I hope to hike it someday.

Re: Been waiting awhile

Hey, my son in law wants to do this one badly, maybe I can hook you two up. Thank you.

This has to be one of the most puzzling DPS summits. I'm sure it is a great trip, but with so many other great peaks in Utah, you have to wonder if there was an impish twist in the minds of the list-makers.
