Hiking to Desolation Peak

Desolation Peak

 AKA: Ninety Nine 90
 Elevation: 9990
 Feature: Peak
Notes: The peak looks down on Desolation Lake, but also provides great 360 degree views. The Wasatch Crest trail goes below its base, so it is likely you will see mountain bikers, especially on odd days of the month when bikers are allowed in upper Mill Creek.
