Little Mountain - January 22, 2022


Dec 23, 2013
Little Mountain is one of the easier summits to reach in the Wasatch, but before today, I had never been to the summit. I had passed it on my way to and from Lookout Peak, and once when returning from Grandview, but just hadn't taken the little jaunt to the top on either of those hikes.

On a beautiful day, we had the summit and the Little Mountain Ridge all to ourselves.

View from near the trailhead, down Emigration Canyon

Moseying at its best

Dale Peak to the west

Lookout Peak to the north

Grandeur Peak to the southwest

The little peak between the hills in the center of the image is the summit of Little Mountain

Another shot down Emigration, with Parley's Ridge on the left and the Mount Wire ridge on the right, and the Oquirrh Mountains
in the far distance.

Still hiking up the ridge

Once on top of the ridge, most people head south for the view of Little Dell and Parley's
Canyon, but the true summit is to the north. We had to break trail along the ridge, but
there have been elk here at some point.

Approaching the Little Mountain summit, with the small hump just over the distant ridge being Big Mountain

A look south from the Little Mountain summit with Broads Fork Twin Peaks in the far distance.

The End.
