Ascent Trip Report

Tracy Foutz, his brother Eric and I decided to go get this one since it was a good prominence peak located in Utah Valley. Unfortunately we picked the opening day of bow hunting season and the mountain area of the Nebo Loop road was a zoo of people. Once we got going on the trail (see Eric Willhite's fine trip report

We found where the trail starts at the campsite area on the right side of the road as Eric mentioned and it was a straight forward hike from that point. It got steep in a couple places but the footing was always good and the scenery always fantastic. Nice views from the summit and we found one witness marker and a register that was in pretty bad shape. We did meet a couple huntenrs on the middle to upper reaches of the mountain but they were looking for deer, not summits. Fantastic weather and great companions.
