Peak 11070 is the northernmost 11,000-foot peak in the Wasatch Plateau a couple miles north of Lowry Top. It offers great views of north central Utah and great wildlife viewing opportunities.
From Mount Pleasant, take E 200 S to the east as it turns into 18550 N, then eventually Forest Road 0037 at the Power Plant Park about 3.5 miles outside of town. Continue on the dirt road for 7 miles and turn right on Skyline Drive. Drive 1.5 miles south on Skyline Drive and park at the fork in the road just west of the peak.
Traverse southeast for a couple hundred yards and meander up the slope between the pine trees to attain the ridgeline that is devoid of trees for a large section. Stay on the ridge to the summit.
Round-trip Distance: 2.2 miles
Elevation Gain: 584 feet

Best times are in the summer and fall due to accessibility. The snow lingers a while on the dirt roads. Winter ascents are possible but would be quite long.
There are many primitive sites but also a good number of developed campgrounds that are listed on the Wasatch Plateau page.
