Overview
Naomi Peak (elevation of 9.979 feet and prominence of 3,159 feet) is in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest in northern Utah. It is the highpoint of Cache County; of the Bear River Mountains; and the Mount Naomi Wilderness.

History
Like many Utah peaks, Naomi Peak has a biblical name: Naomi was the mother-in-law of Ruth in the Old Testament.

Hike
The trail begins on the west side of the parking lot. The trail is well-maintained and easy to follow all the way to the summit. There are a couple of well-signed trail junctions along the way, so you need to pay attention at these junctions and follow the signs to Naomi Peak.

This is an enjoyable hike -- there are some awesome views of the surrounding area, and you'll go through several meadows with prolific wildflowers in the summertime.

There is quite a bit of sun exposure on the hike, so many people will want to start the hike early in the day. However, the elevation is high enough that it isn't horrifically hot.

The area gets quite a bit of snow in the wintertime, so this is primarily a summertime hike. July and August are the best months because that is the time of year when wildflowers are at their peak.

Fees
There is a per vehicle fee to park at the trailhead that doubles as the Tony Grove Day Use Area. America the Beautiful/National Park pass is honored.
