The 2015 Tushars Trifecta will be three peaks not summited on the race course. Take a pic from the summit.
1) Mt. Holly- A fairly easy summit from the start/finish line area (Eagle Point Ski Resort Skyline Lodge parking area). Make sure to continue to the eastern edge of this rounded top to peer off the back side- there are always mountain goats along those cliffs. The ridge line between here and Delano is AMAZING. Approx 2 miles to Holly summit, another mile and a half to Delano summit. Click here for route description from Big John Flat area.
2) Shelly Baldy Peak- another easy summit with very rewarding views. I like to do this one as an 8ish mile loop, starting at the Skyline trailhead, about a mile past Big John Flat. From the trailhead, take the 225 trail about 2 miles to the junction with the 217 and take a right. Follow this trail up to the ridge and then veer left when you approach the top (if you reach Mud Lake junction, you’ve gone too far) and follow the ridgeline to the summit. From the summit you can either turn around and come back the way you came or follow the south ridge down and after 1/4 to 1/2 mile of hitting the treeline you’ll run into the 058 trail. Follow this east towards Big John Flat, then take a left at the jct with the 172 and follow that back to the 225, then follow that two miles back to your car. Free maps are available at the Beaver Ranger District Office at 575 South Main St. in Beaver, UT.
3) Mt. Belknap- This peak is not for the inexperienced. While no ropes are required, the steepness and difficulty of footing will make many people uncomfortable and can present dangerous situations. Use extreme caution. Very steep and SLOW going- give yourself extra time on this one, don’t let the mileage decieve you. Click here for route description
