One thing for sure: descriptions of "how to get there" in the two books about Utah County highpoints are grossly out of date. No sign in Spring City, no sign pointing to South Tent Mountain. I found it by asking campers. Interesting markers on top, though.
I'll add some details on the comments section re: the road, etc. This is one of those long drive and short hike COHP trips but the views and terrain are nice.
Drove as close as we could, down a side road to the base of South Tent, and then bushwhacked up a steep sort of clearing toward the summit. Great views from the summit, found a large wooden cross up there. Had a nice weekend, did Monument Peak and East Mtn also.
Very beautiful area. Went up North Tent and over to South Tent. Great area, fun hike.
Hiked with my 19 year-old nephew, Spencer. The rain had soaked everything and the mountain was socked in with clouds. The access road was more nerve-racking than the hike itself due to how slippery everything was. During the hike, Spencer slid down some steep slopes a couple of times. If we hadn't have marked a waypoint for where my Jeep was parked, it may have been even more of an epic adventure!
Climbed with my wife and boy. It was my boy's first Utah HP. We saw elk and deer and millions of ATVers! We just drove to the base and walked up a gully to the summit.
Up here in the area at the Geocaching Event, and just had to take advantage of camping in the middle of two county highpoints.
I drove the side road to the base of South Tent. Bushwacked it up the side and made the top suprisingly quickly. I love the Wasatch Plateau it is awesomely beautiful! A little over an hour round trip.
We drove into the area early in the morning, and hiked an incorrect peak before it was light enough to realize our mistake. Another few minutes and we were standing on top of S. Tent and enjoying the view of the countryside. On the way down we must have seen 40 head of elk.
Yikes what a road! Still, had a good hike... followed 'Becks Ditch' to below the saddle then up to it and the summit. 2 hrs r/t. Lovely area. Overrun with ATVs.
Climbed in early October. In two days we (my wife and I) did the Tents, Horseshoes, Bald Mountain, and Musina Peak.
Went in from Spring City after trying from the south and found Skyline drive to be blocked by snow. Parked west of No. Tent mountain and went over No. Tent to get to So. Tent. Great hike with Dennis Poulin.
