Summer in the Ramblers
Sunny Days Made for Summiting
Want advice on how to beat the midsummer heat in Utah… get elevated! With no shortage of peaks to climb, campsites to be claimed and cool alpine ponds, streams and lakes to dip your toes into, we know how to enjoy summer.
Hiking, biking, swimming, climbing, fishing, ATVing and the list goes on. Looking to check off a few items on your list? Grab your framepack and head out on a multi-day adventure. The Skyline trail is a great multi-day trek that takes you through dense spruce-fir forests and then out into open meadows with rolling terrain, and along the shorelines of the alpine lakes that are scattered across the landscape.
Hoping for a quick trip and refreshing dip? Make your way to Minersville Reservoir, where you can rent a canoe or paddleboard. The thousand acre reservoir is popular with locals and visitors. Campsites scattered around the reservoir go quick in the summer months, so plan ahead! And don’t forget your fishing pole, the reservoir is full of excellent trophy-sized trout!
Didn’t get your fill of wildflowers in the spring? A little known fact is that it is in late July and early August that over 170 different species of flowers bloom high up in the Tushars. Head up to the meadows at Big John’s Flat to experience these blossoms.
