Iron County High Point Trip Report

Brian Head

A good dirt road leads to the summit. A parking area about 1 mile before the summit allows one the option to hike a trail and cross-country to the top. This is what I did. The trail, despite it being called Brian Head Trail, apparently does not go to the top, or I just grew impatient. In any case, making your own way to the top is very easy. In retrospect, the dusty road and vehicle traffic weren't worth it. I'd suggest to future visitors to swallow your pride and drive to the top.

Awesome views, including Cedar Breaks (equivalently, stop at Cedar Breaks NM and view Brian Head!). There was about 20 people at the top when I came hiking up. I'm sure all were there because of it's status as the Iron County HP :). Some thunderstorms to the east.
