Santaquin Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A day hike or possible overnight trip to the top of 10,685-foot Santaquin Peak. A pleasing combination of alpine and pastoral scenery unfolds as the trail winds its way along several drainages. Along the way are views of Utah Lake and Mount Nebo. Santaquin Peak and Loafer Mountain provide a good change of pace from the more popular areas overlooking the Salt Lake Valley. From the trailhead at 7,700 feet, the trail climbs about 3,000 feet in a little more than 5.5 miles. It’s a good day outing but certainly not overwhelming for hikers in good condition."
