High Top

Take the Scenic Skyline Drive and Discover High Top

High Top is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.321m (10,897ft) above the sea level located in the Sanpete County, in Utah, USA. It’s one of the highest roads in Utah.

Set high in central Utah, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Skyline Drive Scenic Backway (Forest Road 150). The road follows the spine of the Wasatch Plateau. t was built in the 1930’s. Keep your eye on the road though, as you traverse 10,000-foot high ridges barely wider than the road itself. Although many sections are suitable for passenger cars, high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicles are required for rougher parts. The northern section of this road can be driven in a passenger car year round. The southern parts are only recommended for high clearance or four-wheel drive vehicles.

It is accessible July through September. Drivers should be prepared with extra food and water, as well as shovels and chains, should a rainstorm hit and turn the dirt road into a muddy quagmire. This road provides scenic views and offers great opportunity for camping, fishing and hunting. The road is also known as the Utah Adventure Highway. Cell service is unreliable. Be prepared for such conditions.
