South Tent Mountain via Spring Creek Canyon  Sucess!

Finished my trip to the Utah county high points in the Wasatch Plateau with South Tent Mountain (my 13th Utah county high point). I really enjoyed the hike, but Skyline Drive from the top of Spring Creek Canyon to South Tent Mountain is just as awful as everyone says it is. The ruts take more out of you than the hiking does!

One of the Last Wasatch Plateau  Sucess!

Some thorny brush on the way up but pretty mellow hike overall. It took me a while to get around to tagging this peak so it was quite a nice feeling to finally be at the "top" of the range.

One of my first county high points  Sucess!

I hiked South Tent when I was first getting into hiking. Reading my trip report from back then sounds pretty pathetic.

Fun Peak  Sucess!

Really fun peak on a great late summer day. Loads of elk hunters everywhere. I must have been asked half a dozen times if I saw any elk. Glad I wore a brightly colored shirt!

From Spring City  Sucess!

Miko, Nala and I drove the road up Spring City Canyon. When we hit Skyline Drive the road was extremely rutted and I decided I would rather hike than take a chance. We gained the ridge and went over North Tent Mountain and then on to South Tent Mountain. On the way back we went back over North Tent. This put our journey at 6.0 miles gaining 1546 vertical. Fun day.

North and South Tent  Sucess!

Following Skyline Drive heading north we reached impassible snow drifts in the road at a pass at around 10,880 feet. We parked here and hiked the road about 3 miles to the base of North Tent. In the process we lost about 500' of elevation. We then hiked up the open slopes to North Tent before following the ridge to South Tent. On our descent we angled under North Tent, to avoid climbing it again, and worked our way back to Skyline Drive, and back to my truck. This was my third CoHP today and fourth in the past two days.

From above Spring City  Sucess!

Snowshoed up from about 7800' on the road from Spring City, without too much postholing. Trip report.

Camped on North Tent  Sucess!

Deceded to camp on the nice flat summit of North Tent on a perfectly still night and then had a liesurely stroll to South Tent in the morning. Outstanding sunrise!

South Tent in Sanpete  Sucess!

I should have worn more leg protection as this was all bushwhacking. It was a very pretty area and I enjoyed looking at the wild flowers. I'm hoping to get a book to help me identify them next year. Being from Arizona, I not familiar with Utah flora.

Hot and humid  Sucess!

Heat, humidity, bushwhacking and flies made this one kind of a miserable slog. Beautiful area though.

Up the trail.   Sucess!

Went up the saddle between North and South peaks and then proceeded to the top of South Tent. Nice area. In retrospect, I would have went up North Tent first and followed the ridge...likely would've been much easier than all the cross country bushwacking we had to do. Shocked that there is really no trail or marker for the Sanpete County high point!

Two Tents in one night  Sucess!

Climbed North Tent from the North Ridge from Skyline Drive. Continued along the saddle to South Tent. Took the same route back. Much better without fog!

Got stranded....  Sucess!

Climbed the mountain from the south side of the saddle. Reached the summit as the fog of an approaching blizzard set in. Got lost on the north side in Black Canyon, thinking I was still on the south side at the head of Canal Canyon. Had to make an emergency shelter of pine boughs to keep me and Rocky (my dog) warm for the night. Sanpete County Search and Rescue found me the next afternoon.

Mud, mud, and more mud  Sucess!

Took the Ephraim Canyon Road to Skyline Drive. This road is now in excellent shape and is much better than the road from Spring City. The section of Skyline Drive to the base of N Tent was only marginally rutted and for the most part was pretty good and was way better than the section from the top of the Spring City Road to the base of N Tent which looked too rutted for our lowly Subaru when we viewed it last week. However, once things unfroze, it was mud city and we now own the world's dirtiest car. Last week my husband used a snow shovel to get the mud off of our driveway. Tonight he said it was too dark so I guess I see how bad it is tomorrow.

For the hike itself, we went over N Tent to S Tent, back to the saddle, descended to the SW, and then traversed around the base of N Tent back to the car.

Both tents  Sucess!

This makes UT CoHP #6 for me. Spring City to skyline Friday afternoon. Skyline drive had some really bad mud spots North of the Tents and I parked and tried to summit. I only made it about 20 minutes up the side of N. Tent before the sun started setting because of the extra hour walk. I turned around and went back and slept in the truck. Next morning the mud was frozen over so I made it to the base of N. Tent driving. Walked to the base of the saddle and went up a gully. Hit South first. Then North. Came back down the slope of North. Great beautiful fall morning hike. Took skyline south to the Orangeville turnoff and made it to East Mt. in Emery Co. and summited later in the afternoon. 2 Utah CoHP in 1 day. =)

Loved this area  Sucess!

This is a very beautiful area. I'm glad I made the trip. Thanks mountain!

Above the Skyline Drive  Sucess!

Hiked South Tent Mt. via North Tent, then down into basin and along base of North Tent. Beautiful.

About Time  Sucess!

I spent much of my youth in these mountains, but never hiked South Tent. Hit both of them and enjoyed some elk down below.

Very nice hike  Sucess!

Climbed to the saddle between north and south tent. Did both peaks. Very easy climb and the views were very nice. Road down Spring City canyon was very dusty but in good shape. Looks like the forest service is in the process of fixing the road
