Hike Mount Ellsworth

Mount Ellsworth - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The hike to the summit of Mount Ellsworth is a perfect, secluded climb for experienced hikers. Just outside of Lake Powell, this hike rewards adventurers with scenic desert views. The best recommended route is along the north ridge.

There is no specific trail that takes you to the peak - utilize a GPS / map for route finding. A small antenna shack and antenna can be found on the summit. The shack is a nice shaded spot to eat your lunch or soak in the views. There is typically a register found in the summit cairn.

Nearby Star Springs Campground is a recommended camping spot. However, you can also camp on nearby BLM lands.
