Mine Camp Peak (elevation of 10,222 feet and prominence of 3,039 feet) had been on my hike list for a while. I wanted to do the hike this summer, but the roads to the TH were closed due to a fire. However, the closure order expired on October 1, so I was able to do the hike afterall.

This is a short hike on a named trail that is actually more like a use trail. The trail petered out as I neared the summit, but it didn't matter -- I could see the summit and I was in open country, so a trail wasn't really needed.

There were nice views at the summit, and the aspen groves were exploding.

The drive in was a bit long -- 18 miles on dirt from the town of Richfield. So it was 36 miles of dirt road driving for a one mile hike. No wonder I hike solo most of the time!

I have now been to the highpoint of 26 of Utah's 29 counties.

There were some really nice aspen groves along the drive and hike. It almost would get an "extreme" rating, but not quite.
