Tallest mountain in the Tushar Mountains, Beaver and Piute Counties This is a relatively easy hike considering how tall it is. The Tushar Mountains are the third tallest group of mountains in Utah. Upon seeing some of the other majestic peaks, one would want to climb those. In comparison to Belknap and Baldy, Delano is a giant heap of rock, with no craggy features like some of its neighbors. The benefit is that Delano is a gentle slope, making this somewhat of a stroll, and not a grueling pursuit. This is a good mountain for various skill levels and ages, and it is a highpoint for the mountains and for two Utah counties. Another benefit is great views of incredible looking mountains that are not too far from Delano. Getting to the top is simply a matter of following the grassy slope that lies between Griffith Creek and Poison Creek. Once you reach the summit, there is a summit cairn, and a mailbox.

The Tushar's truly are one of backcountrys best kept secrets. Note: Major construction on Hwy-153, as of 9/2012, results in a 28 mile detour around a 3 mile stretch of road.
