strange looking tripod
From the gate start hiking up the road. Along the way are other smaller roads that take you off from the route you want. Stay on the main road, past a second road that makes a sharp switchback and follow it as it descends and gradually ascends again. As you near the benchmark the road becomes much steeper.
At the top is a strange looking tripod used for triangulation, I’m told.
This hike offers great views of both Salt Lake City and Utah Valley.
