Skyline National Recreation Trail

A day hike along the “skyline” of the Tushar Mountains with spectacular views of several ranges and the east and west side of the Tushar Mountains. Closed to all motorized travel, this trail is an excellent one for those people looking for solitude on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. As a whole the Skyline Trail is rated easy to moderate in difficulty, with only a few short, strenuous sections. All trailheads and junctions along the way are well signed. Since there are different trailheads along this trail, you can plan a short half-day hike or a point-to-point trek with a vehicle shuttle. Several trails interconnect with the Skyline for those who want to spend more than just one day. 17.5 total miles

National Scenic and Recreational Trail, the Skyline Trail hike to Delano Peak thumb_Delano-Peak

Delano Peak sits at 12,169 feet, the highest point in the Tushar Mountains. The views from Delano Peak are some of the most spectacular in Utah.  Heading East from the repeater tower along the ridgeline, looking to the north-east you will see Bullion Pasture and Bullion Canyon.  Continuing around the ridgeline to the north-east you pass along "The Pocket" to see Delano Peak to the south.  Follow the southern ridgeline until you reach the 12,169 ft summit.  To the North you will see Sevier County and I-70 leading to Richfield. To the East you will see Piute Reservoir and Highway 89. To the South you will see the Holly Peak and Elk Meadow Ski Resort. To the west you will see glimpses of Beaver and the Great Basin beyond. While enjoying the view from the lofty peak, you may be fortunate enough to see the large herd of mountain goats that live along these alpine ridges.

To access the trail head from Marysvale, head west up Beaver Creek to Forest Service Road 123 (Big John Flats Road).  follow the first left fork for about 4.5 miles to where the road again forks.  Take the right (west) fork to the Forest Service repeater tower, there you will find parking for the trail head. The round trip hike is nearly 4 miles.
