Ascent Trip Report

Having reached the Carrington Island high point earlier in the day we moved on to Stansbury Island with the goal of knocking out two island peaks in one day. We arrived at the quarry area at around 1300hrs and unloaded the ATV's. From there we took the Tabby's Canyon trail to the ridgeline, going as far as we could on ATV's. We left the bikes and headed out on foot at about 1400, headed north. The "trail" was well defined for about a half mile before it turned into game trails and bushwacking. We just followed the ridgeline over the terrain. From the bikes to the peak it was 2.36 miles, but it took us about 1hr and 45 minutes to hike that distance due to the terrain. The final approach to the peak was quite steep, but not super technical. The GPS says the elevation was 6627ft. The map says 6398ft. By the time we got back to the ATV's it was 1800hrs and completely dark. I do not recommend riding the Tabby's Canyon trail in the dark. It is a VERY rocky and technical ATV trail. We lost our way once on the way back and had to do some pathfinding in the dark. We got back to the truck at 1915 and then headed to the McDonalds in Tooele for dinner.
