Kimberly Road Professional Review and Guide

"Not many people know of the Tushar Mountains. Perhaps that is understandable; perhaps that is good. The Tushars’ presence is peripheral, if not subliminal, as you cruise past the wayside town of Beaver on Interstate 15. From afar the Tushars rise sluggishly through subtle contours to seemingly submissive heights.

A snowcapped peak or two hovers above timberline, and a shadow-filled canyon creases a slope; but all are too distant and ill-defined to spark real curiosity. But if you dare exit the freeway and wander into Tushars’ heartland, you will find that your preconceptions pleasantly erred. The Tushars are the state’s third highest range (behind the Uintas and La Sals) and are home to Utah’s sixth tallest peak, Delano Peak, at 12,169 feet. Herds of elk populate the pristine woods and commonly leave their protective cover to forage the mountain’s meadows. Tread: Packed dirt and rock doubletracks throughout are suitable for high clearance and/or four-wheel-drive vehicles."
