Naomi Peak

Naomi Peak is the highest peak in the Bear River Range. (the northernmost subrange of the Wasatch Mountains)The peak is the high point on the main north-south ridge. It only visible from Cache Valley in a very few places as there are other high mountains in front of it. It is located on the eastern boundary of the Naomi Peak Wilderness area. it is a very massive mountain and it's difficult to tell when you're actually on the top. The west face is a series of broken cliffs that drop quite a ways. the east face is very rocky and sharp but not half as steep as the west. There was a USGS marker on the top, it is gone now. The peak can be approached from either the east, via the Tony Grove trailhead, or the northwest, via the High Creek Lake trailhead. The latter is the longest and most difficult route.

    Lovely place. When I started out, it was raining, but no thunder, so I decided to persevere. I'm glad I did. It was nice and cool and very pleasant as the rain sprinkled intermittently.

    I would first like to say, if you're gonna be hiking the higher mountains, always go in early summer because when the snow melts that bare rock is pretty ugly by itself. Make sure you have some good...

    ON July 4, 1997 there was a LOT of snow. Couldn't find the last mile of the trail. Passed a forest ranger and 3 backcountry skiers on the way up

    Short, relatively easy hike, not too far from Salt Lake City. Good views, wish I had time to make the hike to scenic White Pine Lake (think that's the name?) nearby.

    This is a very fun and somewhat difficult climb. The view from the top is spectacular.
