Hike, Mountain Bike, and Rock Climb

Established in 1978 and located southeast of Salt Lake, Lone Peak is one of the taller peaks in the Wasatch range along the Wasatch Front. It has 5 main trailheads: Jacobs Ladder via Corner Canyon Road (access road from Orson Smith trailhead) and Jacobs Ladder Trailhead, the Cherry Canyon Logging Trail via Orson Smith trailhead at the Corner Canyon Gate 2000 E and 12600 S, from the town of Alpine and the Schoolhouse Springs trailhead, Big Willow Canyon via Hidden Valley Park trailhead at 11500 S Wasatch Blvd, and the Bells Canyon trailhead at 10200 S Wasatch Blvd.

The summit of Lone peak is over 11,000 ft. with a starting elevation of 5,200 ft. The average distance covering the peak is 9 miles for a round-trip and this trail would take approximately 5-7 hours to completion. The mountain is a beautiful and big mountain and can be easily seen from Salt Lake City but the terrains are rugged, narrow canyon and alpine cirque is dominated by the peak of the mountain. Taking pre-cautions and reading signs will help along the way in dealing with this peak; it's been known as one of the most difficult summits of the 18 Wasatch mountain peaks but if you're an experienced hiker/biker and want to be challenged, then this is one of the best peaks to fulfill your appetite.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don't feed the wildlife.

I will be respectful
