The road to the summit is unpaved. It’s called Skyline Drive (Forest Road 008). It’s a windy and narrow dirt road with steep drop offs set in an alpine basin. It is 39.91km (24.8 miles) long, running from Farmington to Bountiful.

Located in Wasatch-Cache National Forest, in the Northern Wasatch Mountains, the drive is pretty steep but most cars will be able to make the journey. Large vehicles, RVs, and towing trailers over 24 ft' are not recommended. The road can be accessed year round but may be closed in winter when the weather is bad.
