At 11,031 feet, Deseret Peak is the highest point in Tooele County and the centerpiece of the Deseret Peak Wilderness Area. It’s also a magnificent expanse of both semiarid and alpine scenery—glacial basins, mountain streams, woodland, and high meadows—rising from the middle of the desert. This loop hike captures some of that surprising variety and affords views across the Bonneville Salt Flats and into Nevada.
