Notch Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Follow the 4WD track up the canyon, noting the high cliff walls on both sides of the small gorge. The canyon opens up after a little less than a mile and the 4WD track splits. To the right is a more open canyon; to the left the smaller canyon follows the south cliff walls.

The canyon soon turns north and opens back up. Up ahead you’ll see a saddle between two peaks. It’s about 1.25 miles from the ledges to the saddle. Once at the saddle you’ll be able to look over the cliff edge. Be careful -- it’s over 2000 feet down. Turn west and ascend a short, but steep, half mile to the top of Notch Peak. The vertical cliffs rank as the tallest in Utah, with a sheer drop of almost 1500 feet and a total drop of nearly 5000 feet to Tule Valley below."

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.
