Dude Benchmark is a highpoint on a long ridge between Salt Lake City and the city of Bountiful. This prominent ridge divides Salt Lake and Davis Counties and is well know and visible everywhere. Because the west running ridgeline extends so far west from the main north/south Wasatch peaks, the views are spectacular. With the relatively low elevation, the hike can be done most of the year, with snowshoes required up higher.
