High in Utah is a book for peak baggers and hikers alike. It accommodates all levels of experience. Most of Utah's high peaks can be climbed in a day, and some are even attainable by car. Summits range in elevation from Kings Peak, Utah's highest at 13,528 ft., to the unnamed peak in Rich County, a mere 9,255 ft. In addition to the county high points, this book also has four classic climbs: Mt. Olympus, My. Timpanogos, Notch Peak in the House Range west of Delta, and Wellsville Cone, Cache Valley's western landmark.
Since finding a place to start can often be the hardest part of a hike, emphasis is placed on directions to each trailhead. There is a road map for each hike, as well as a trail map showing contours.
