Description 

Brian Head Peak, Village and Ski resort offer a lot of recreation opportunities. In winter there is the ski resort as well as cross country skiing. In the summer there is hiking, mountain biking, camping and climbing.


Getting There 

From nouthern Utah take Interstate 15 to exit 75 at Parowan, drive 14 miles up the mountain to Brian Head Resort.

If you are heading up from St. George or Las Vegas access to these crags may be faster and shorter by driving up Cedar Canyon from Cedar City. Take Highway 14 East to Highway 148 (this is also the turn for Cedar Breaks National Monument). Drive through Cedar Breaks (no fee required if you're just driving through) and make a right (east) on Highway 143. The Sport climbing areas are located at various distances down this road.

The Overlook- 4.7 miles to the Sydney Valley Rd (Forest Road 048).

The Running Scared Wall- 5.5 miles to pull off.

The Principality- 13 mile to bunker creek road.
