Frances/Thurston ridgeline

Wasatch Mountains - The North Group Your online resource for hiking, climbing and travel
There are 40 peaks with 300+ feet of prominence inside the highway loop of I-15, I-80 and I-84. The names in quotes are not official but given based on something unique for the area. They may even change after visiting the summit and I find something unique or more appropriate. I will also change them based on local names.
This area is popular for hiking in Utah being nearest to Salt Lake City. Most of the peaks above downtown are very popular along with the front range peaks in Davis County. Surprisingly many of these are rarely climbed, probably due to lack of aesthetic value and lower elevations. Click on the summit you want to see a report for.
