“A long climb to a tall, rugged peak in the northern Wasatch Range.”— Keaton Reed
Finally, the trail climbs into an alpine environment, with views of the Wasatch front and Ogden Valley.
The trail climbs up and out of the canyon and gains the Iverson ridge, which provides hikers with excellent views as well. The trail then connects with a maintenance road and ascends to the peak, where a huge communications complex sits. The panorama is incredible, with views of the Great Salt Lake, Snow Basin ski resort, Ogden Valley, and the Wasatch Range. The maintenance road is very steep, probably the steepest part of the entire trail. It is also not very well-maintained and has a lot of loose rock. There is a side trail that spurs off the road and ascends to the peak, which is also very steep, but a little easier to climb up. It requires a bit of non-technical scrambling.
