Tangent Peak seen from Big Pass to the east. This is the trailhead where I started from. I followed the east slopes up to the south ridge on the left side of the photo to the summit. This is an easy hike with a long drive. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. Many of the road junctions were unsigned in this desolate area so I probably wouldn’t be able to accurately describe how I got here
Tangent Peak is the highpoint of the Hogup Mountains at 7,047 feet elevation. The range is located on the northwest end of the Great Salt Lake. The benchmark on the summit was labeled as Terrace. Its name comes from the ghost town of Terrace, Utah which was established in 1869 as an operations base of the Central Pacific Railroad on the route of the First Transcontinental Railroad
