5/2/10: Took the trail up Chief than traversed over Papoose to Squaw and back down the Squaw Mtn Road to my car. Also climbed a few of the other easy access peaks off the Squaw Pass Road, lots of peaks available for little effort on this road!
Note that the highest point is not the lookout, its in the rock outcrops to the west of the radio towers.
12/8/12: Repeat with Chief and Papoose. Also climbed Warrior and PT 11060.
3 hours roundtrip.
Climbed this one winter in conjunction with Chief Mountain...fun day, quite cold.
hiked squaw in lovely -3 degree weather. snow, freezing temps and an on again, off again, biting wind reminded me that the warm deserts of utah are a long ways off.
Janey Butterworth and I summited here on snowshoes on April 5th, 2009. It was windy and cold at the top, but the clouds were spectacular
Nice straightforward hike with the family
Beautiful day for hiking, though it got a little breezy at the lookout tower. I saw only two other hikers, and I did see two government vehicles heading up the road. I scrambled around on some of the crags, and then headed over to the lookout tower. I heard some gunfire off in the woods on the way down. It was pretty heavy at times.
wonderful hike by myself
Wife, dog and I.
I enjoyed a nice hike to the summit with my husband and one of our dogs. We carried our snow shoes the entire way. However, we were concerned that the sun would soften the snow during our hiked making our return route a post-hole hell. Clouds rolled in from the west bringing cooler air and blocking the sun. All in all a nice route, but off leash, out of control dogs (namely one woman with two large GSDs that wouldn't mind her "voice command" and harassed our dog) and massive piles of dog crap everywhere were a downer.
Hiked all three together. Not another soul around.
Nice little midweek, midday training hike and I carried the snowshoes the whole way.
Beautiful winter day for a snow shoe hike up both Chief and Squaw Mountains.
