My poor legs  Sucess!

I could have started at Squaw Peak road, but I wanted a bit more out of it so I was going to start from the Y trailhead. Then I figured why not be really ridiculous and park half a mile down the road. According to my Garmin it was 6.7 miles and 6625 feet of elevation one way. My legs feel like jello.

The weather was unbelievable today. Not a cloud anywhere, no snow, and 70 degrees at the trailhead in the afternoon. I couldn't believe I had the whole mountain to myself when I was up there.

Steep  Sucess!

Hiked with Duc. Started at 5 pm. Great views. Awesome sunset on the way out. Didn't know the peak to the east was another 11er. We should have kept going. A good excuse to return to a beautiful area.

Steep  Sucess!

Short but steep hike from the pass, where we parked the Jeep, a very fun road to go fast on! Views were incredible although it was getting late but I decided to do East Provo Peak anyway.

Three false summits  Sucess!

Great hike. The summit kept teasing but we got there. Just park on the camelback road and walk up :)

Long Way from Y Mountain Trailhead  Sucess!

Started from the Y Mountain trailhead, and went up over Lion's Head and then back down to the Provo Peak west ridge trailhead. Lots of elevation gain (and some loss that had to be made up on the way back), but it was a great workout! Finding the right places to turn to get from the Y trail to the Provo Peak trailhead can be tricky without GPS, but with it I was able to manage.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up the west ridge and enjoyed the views for a bit.

from Provo to Provo peak  Sucess!

I woke up early morning and started the long hike via the Y mountain trailhead. Saw two big deer on the trail and refilled water in a little spring up in the saddle. Like a few other posters here, after crossing Squaw Peak road, I followed the ATV trail for too long and then almost got lost in the thick dense bushes. Finally reached the summit after 7 hours' hike from Provo. The views were spectacular - you could see all the way to the Great Salt Lake and the Uintas - and there were 5 other climbers and many more butterflies. It was nice to see the BYU SWKT tower and the "Y" mountain so deep below. The descent back to Provo took 4 hours and I walked back through the first right fork trail and Rock canyon. There were delicious berries on the trail.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Made the short but steep hike up to the top of Provo Peak, and then continued on to East Provo Peak with David. We started out descending the southeast slopes and then traversing over to the ridge between the two peaks, but after encountering some miserably loose shale (honestly, the worst terrain I've ever encountered) we decided to stay on the ridge on the way back, which proved to be much easier. Even on the ridge the rock was a bit loose in places though, so I'd urge caution to whoever tries it. See "Jekyll & Hyde" trip report for details.

Provo Peak  Sucess!

I enjoyed this peak. The trail is steep. The scenery is great. We saw a lot of wildflowers. We also did East Provo Peak. I did this hike with Brandon (Rocky Alps).

Keep Provo Awkward!  Sucess!

It is interesting that such a high peak, with significant prominence above a city of over 100,000 people has such a nondescript trail, and few climbers. It really is a gorgeous mountain with gorgeous views. On the fourth of July we had the mountain to ourselves. It is a steep trail however, it opens the lungs for sure! Worth it! Took about an hour and a half from Squaw Peak Road.

Provo Peak  Sucess!

6/18/2015 As part of a traverse from Shingle Mill Peak to Provo Peak, with Ben Stokes. Started up Dry Fork to Shingle Mill, traverse to Provo, with a descent down the North Ridge of Provo into Burnt Hollow and bushwhack down to the Squaw Peak road eventually getting back down to my truck at the Dry Fork TH. Pretty awesome day. The bushwhack down Burnt Hollow was pretty brutal.
9/20/2013 West Ridge approach. Short, steep, fun hike. Great views all around. Hiked it with my dad.

Extra mileage  Sucess!

Squaw Peak road was washed out so we parked the vehicle and hiked on the road for a while.
08/16/2014-Took the pups (Miko and Nala) this time. We all loved it.

From Rock Canyon  Sucess!

Short little climb with enough elevation to keep you on your toes. Started from Rock Canyon TH to stretch the day out a little more. I followed the ATV trail a little too long (like a few before me, you'd think I'd have known better) and ended up on the north side of the ridge, bushwacking up the terracing. Finally worked my way over to the trail and had a lovely climb to the top.

West Ridge  Sucess!

West Ridge route. Didn't have access to a 4x4 so we rode MTBs up the road instead.

It's not me, it's you.  Sucess!

Whatever you do, do not attempt a traverse across to East Provo Peak. Unless you really like loose shale, you have a lot of time to kill, you hate fun, and you have a death wish. Gorgeous views from the summit of Provo Peak, though! It's the perfect vantage point from which to admire far lovelier Wasatch peaks. (I'm looking at you, Nebo!)

A short nice hike  Sucess!

I was trying to complete 7 peaks, I did only 5 and this was the last and easier. Fun still...

Long road-walk  Sucess!

Walked the road from the gate, then went up the NW ridge and down the W ridge. The snow was nice and hard -- almost too hard for my Kahtoolas. Mini-trip report.
