car camp, swasey and notch peak day hikes - May 29, 2021
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.Swasey Peak and Notch Peak are both classic hikes in western Utah and easily done in a short weekend trip. The drive is about 180 miles each way. Swasey is the high point in the House Range and Notch Peak is on the southern end of the range and famous for its huge face on the west side. We will drive out and meet at the trailhead for Swasey on Saturday morning and do the peak that afternoon. The hike is approximately 4 miles round trip and 1600 elevation gain with a little bushwhacking. There is a great camping area right where we start the hike. Sunday morning we will drive the 20 miles south to Notch Peak. That hike is approximately 8 miles round trip with about 2800 feet elevation gain. Return home that afternoon. This is a remote area. We will be camping in an undeveloped area so you will need to bring everything you need including plenty of water. Plan for COVID19 precautions. Register with Dennis to get logistic details. Limit 8.
