Rich County - Unnamed Peak (Bridger Peak) Professional Review and Guide

"At 9,255 feet, Rich County’s highest peak is nameless. A Salt Lake Tribune contest has proposed the moniker Bridger Peak, commemorating mountain man Jim Bridger, who sought beaver in nearby creeks. Bear Lake’s emerald-green waters lie to the east of the high point.

Bear River Range’s Naomi and Doubletop peaks create a jutting horizon to the west. With squinted eyes the Bear River can be seen to the north. Highway of the overland traveler, its meanders map the Oregon Trail."

The 4-wheeler trail that leads up the mountain head directly up the steepest part of the slope, without the slightest hint of a switchback. It's extremely dusty and the second half of the hike is bushwhacking at it's finest. Simply keep going until you can't go any higher. That's one of the advantages of hiking high points, if you get lost just keep going higher and you'll eventually get there :)! Great views of Bear Lake to the East and there were definetly no crowds on this hike.
