Notch Peak

Notch Peak Professional Review and Guide

"A day hike to the top of 9,655-foot Notch Peak in the House Range, 44 miles southwest of Delta. The area offers solitude, bristlecone pines, and spectacular views of the Great Basin in Utah and Nevada.

The 9-mile round trip to the top of Notch Peak (9,655 feet)—part of an 80,000-acre Bureau of Land Management wilderness study area—offers an opportunity to get away from throngs of hikers in more popular backcountry areas. The hike is not difficult, despite a 3,000-foot climb. Most of the trip is along a dry wash. Only the final 0.25 mile to the top is relatively steep."

Outstanding hike. The views at the saddle are outstanding. Unfortunately, the day we did the hike, 5/27/06, a storm blew in in the time it took us to climb from the saddle to the top of Notch Peak. All we could see from the top was snow and cloud. Ah well, another day... The trail description was a little sketchy, but just keep to the wash/gulley and you will make it to the saddle. From the saddle, the peak is to your left. Yes, up that! There were several cairns placed that we found to be 100% accurate; so follow them.
