desert peak & tangent peak day hike

We'll meet at an appropriate location somewhere in SLC at 7 AM. From there, we will drive west on I-80 to Exit 62, then north to Lakeside. Once we reach Lakeside, we drive 25 miles west along the RR tracks to the Newfoundland Mountain Road. From there, we drive south along the west side of the mountains to the trailhead. The climb will be a Class 2 off trial hike with some minor rock scrambling. After Desert Peak, we will try the nearby Tangent Peak, which is a short easy hike. We will need 4WD vehicles to reach the trailheads. The summitpost links are below. Please contact me before April 1 if you want to go.
