Hidden Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.344m (10,971ft) above the sea level, located in Salt Lake County, in the U.S. state of Utah. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Utah.
Located in the Wasatch Range, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Hidden Peak Road (Snowbird Service Road). It’s a dirt-and-gravel service road. 4x4 vehicle required. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. The road is narrow and eroded enough to make travel a little uncomfortable.
The road to the summit is very exposed and steep. Starting from E Hwy 210, the ascent is 8.20km (5.1 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 828 meters. The average gradient is 10.09%.
