You made this page because you are "really board and everyone else is in bed." Climbing Walton Peak is like "eating a squirrel." Actually, I think its good to have some mountains on SP that are better to climb in winter.
some of my winter route descriptions LOL. No flowers and no fish in the lakes :) I was also thinking about posting a really low, really flat mountain, The Dell of North Fk Provo in W Uintas. At least the Dell is also *really* inaccessible, no roads, no trails, no 'bilers tracks, with cliffs guarding most of its sides.
The problem with posting descriptions for certain kinds of mountains is that those who are most likely to go there are also the least likely to need instructions :))
Scott - what guide book are you referencing?
Hiking the Boat II
The book is good, but is mostly geared for easy hikes on trails.
If you want to avoid the snowmobiles, part at Walton Creek winter TH, maybe 1/2 mile west of the snowmobile demarcation line, and take the 3A and 3C trails (blue diamonds) past North Walton Peak and then break trail up the north ridge to the summit. Its kind of a round-about way to get their, but peaceful. Some snowmobile tracks right at the summit, but mostly this is a snowshoe/ski only route.
Thanks for the information! I'll have to look into the route.
