Sevier County - Fish Lake Hightop Professional Review and Guide

"Fish Lake Hightop rises above Fish Lake, and on the west-northwest wall of this plateau sits the high point at 11,633 feet. To the north, Mt. Nebo can be seen on a clear day. The Tuschar mountains, with dominant peaks Mounts Belknap and Baldy, are southwest.

Mountain bikers, hikers, and equestrians make Fish Lake Hightop their domain. Managed like a wilderness area, motorized vehicles are forbidden in this high country, said Max Reid, recreation specialist on the FishlakeNational Forest.

However, at the lake, three resorts and seven campgrounds lodge visitors who cast into some of the best fishing waters in Utah. For those who prefer watching wildlife, deer, elk and bear roam nearby. Osprey migrate to Fish Lake from Central and South America where they spend winters. When hunting, they circle low over bodies of water looking for prey."

This turned into a snowshoe hike after about a mile of snow free trail, but that only added to the fun. The weather was overcast so our views were limited, but when a strong wind blew we often caught glimpses of Fish Lake from atop the plateau. Once you're on top or the plateau it is very easy to get disoriented because of the flat terrain. If the weather is overcast at all it will be important to bring a compass/gps in order to find your way down. Fairly easy hiking and high altitude make this a fun weekend trip. The Fish Lake area is also quite beautiful is worth spending a couple hours exploring.
