If your dog likes big, long trails and bagging another summit with sweeping views and little water, consider Santaquin Peak. If you and your dog are low energy or you don’t want to carry water for him, consider other hikes in the book. This hike is a great workout in a part of the state that has limited hiking trails. Although there are higher peaks to scale along the Wasatch Front, few offer such delicious solitude and fantastic scenery. Santaquin Peak is named after the son of a tribal chief who lived in the area in the 1850s.
