Remember if you are going to take the Squaw Peak Trail road, that it will take about an hour to drive this 4WD road to the base.

To get to the base of Provo Peak from Salt Lake City:
Go south on I-15 and take exit 275 which takes you to highway 52 and then to Highway 189. When the road splits, take the one to Bridal Veil Falls. Just after mile marker 9 you will see a road that turns south (right) this should say "Squaw Peak Trail". From there follow the paved road until it ends and then continue along a dirt road (4WD) until you get to the base of the peak. There were lots of other confusing turn offs, so definately find a map if you want to have a positive experience.

The light was so bland that I didn't get any real pictures, that means I need to go back.
It took us about 1.5 to 2 hours to summit from the parking area.

Cascade Peak Wildflowers

From along the west ridge to Provo Peak
Looking northwest over a wildflower to Cascade Peak, Mount Timpanogos and Lone Peak.


Provo Peak Trail

I've included this picture that shows where you turn right/east and begin the west ridge to Provo Peak.
It is very easy to miss. The jeep trail continues and the right/east trail just looks like a steep sidewall.
You can also cut east up the mountain before this area.

If you have free time on your hands, make a sign for this turn, or stack a few rocks.
If you have a large scout troop, or just a large group,
you could stomp a clear trail from here up to the clearing,
There are many animal trails, a more defined trail would help with errosion.


Provo Peak

Going up the west ridge. After this point, the trail is easy to see and follow.


Provo Peak Summit

Just a few minutes from the summit of Provo Peak, Jared can be seen on the top.
