day hike - stookey benchmark & north stookey, south of tooele - 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.
We plan to hike to Stookey Benchmark (9020 ft) and North Stookey (8845 ft) in south of Tooele, weather, conditions and situation permitting. Stookey BM is on the list of UT Prominence peaks but is rarely climbed. Stookey BM is also the highest point in the area. Please bring microspikes and 10 Es. Approximately half to two-thirds of the parts are on the 4WD road. The last part to the peak will be off-trail (open country). Exploratory. Please email before Friday, 6 pm on May 28 for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info. Limit 8. COVID-19 protocols will apply.
