She's a Mann, baby!
Overview - With an elevation of 12,272ft, Manns Peak is the 5th highest of the twelve 12k peaks in the La Sal Mountains.
Hike - The hike begins at the trailhead for Burro Pass Trail No. 032, climbing about a mile to Burro Pass at about 11,180ft. Trail 032 is the southernmost segment of the popular "Whole Enchilada" mountain-biking trail that covers 26 miles from the La Sals to the Colorado River near Moab. Subsequently, the first mile of hiking is on well-maintained singletrack.
Once reaching Burro Pass, the route follows Manns Peak Trail No. 110, a trail not open to mountain bikers. Trail 110 climbs to the summit over a 1.25-mile well-defined route. Well-constructed steps lead the trail through the talus below the summit.
Optional Loop - From Manns Peak, hikers can continue north along the ridge toward Waas Peak and connect with Dry Fork Mill Creek. From here the trail continues downstream before looping back up to Burro Pass.
Optional Starting Points - The trailhead for Burro Pass Trail No. 032 is located at the end of FR 240, a rough 4x4 road. If you don't wish to drive this road, you may begin the hike from its junction with the much smoother FR 071. This adds an extra 0.5 miles and 300 feet of gain to the hike described here.
Additionally, you may begin at the Geyser Pass Trailhead and follow the well-marked Whole Enchilada Trail to the Burro Pass Trailhead. This connector trail adds 1.5 miles and drops 150 feet of elevation.
