Swedish Knoll is one of several short tree-covered knolls on the high flats of the Wasatch Plateau. Each is easily hiked within an hour and make for nice family outings from Skyline Drive. 

Getting There

Take State Road 31 (Ephraim Canyon Road) east from Ephraim 8-9 miles and turn right (south) on Skyline Drive and drive 2.8 miles until the Swedish Knoll is visible on the left (east) side.


From Skyline Drive, it is a straight shot through the short grass to the knoll. 

Round-trip Distance: 1 mile
Elevation Gain: 70 feet loss, then 60 feet of gain

Red Tape

US Forest Service manages this area. No permit is required. You can park near the restrooms in the southern part of the campground without any trouble. Practice "Leave No Trace" ethics. 

When to Climb

Year-round though a snowmobile, skis, and/or snowshoes would be extremely helpful in winter.


Lake Hill Campground is halfway between Skyline Drive and Ephraim. There are other undeveloped pullouts in the area.
