This is a great spring/fall choice if you're local, can only get out for half a day, and want some solitude.
I followed Greg's/Eric's route. Super-easy navigation, and big obvious cairn now where the use trail leaves the road. BTW, the first gate was padlocked when I was there. As Dean noted, this appears to be prime rattler country this time of year, but I also lucked out and encountered none.
From Redrock Canyon. Very enjoyable hike despite scaring up two raccoons and a porcupine.
Beautiful spring hike. Also went over to Rocky Ridge and back.
Nice views. Gregs trail was perfect. Check my website page for more pictures, a map with Gregs route and a 360 summit view video http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah/redrock_peak/east_canyon_state_park_374.htm
Did the approach from Redrock Canyon. I used Dean’s route to climb the peak and went down a different way which was probably closer to Greg’s route. I encountered a little snow above 7,000 feet. A storm front was moving through and it was very windy on top of the ridge. This was actually a nice area and the view was better than I expected.
I enjoyed this hike and the area since I wasn't expecting the scenery and conditions to be so nice.
