Tri-County Peak ◉

Difficulty: Beginner

Length: 3.5 miles round trip

Elevation Gain: 1,000 feet

Dog Friendly: Yes


Trailhead coordinates (copy + paste): 40.6069, -111.5549

Directions: About 1.25 miles before you reach the trailhead, park at the new Bloods Lake lot on the right side of the road and walk up the road to the drop off zone. Directly across the road from the drop off zone, you will see the trail heading Northwest around the hill. Length and elevation counts include walking up the road. If you start at the drop off zone, it is closer to 1 mile and 300 feet. This road is seasonal and can only be accessed from mid/late May through early November. Check UDOT's traffic website for current status.


A short and sweet hike for any season (snow permitting the road is only open late May/early June through October), Tri-County Peak marks the place where Summit, Salt Lake, and Wasatch counties meet. To avoid the steep and slippery climb straight up the official trail, head left and wind your way up and around the hill on the dirt road, where you will pass the top of Jupiter chairlift before reaching the summit.
