I love summiting the peaks in Utah! The views are unparalleled and the sense of accomplishment is great, even when the hike wasn’t hard. Some peak hikes require a difficult climb, but some trails start out so close to top that it can be as little as one easy mile to the top! I also included a few that are nearly peaks, meaning they are an outcropping or lesser summit.

Here is a list of peaks trails in Utah in order of hike length. The difficulty and county are included in the descriptions:

Buffalo Peak – 0.9 easy miles (Utah)
Sugarloaf Peak – 2.7-5.4 moderate miles (Salt Lake)
