Anyone know if this is still hikeable right now?

Hiked, climbed, and skied this mountain multiple times since I was 5 years old. Great scenery a lot of fun places to explore on the ridge. If you’re looking to do some backcountry skiing in Southern Utah this is the place. There is a nice chute that goes right down the face of the mountain as well as the back which is awesome. For hikers the shortest route is to go from poison creek which takes about an hour to hike up from there. Great views great hike overall fun mountain.

The views that this hike offers are absolutely stunning. Some years there will be patches of snow near the peak all year round.

Nice hike. Straight up the ridge line to the peak. The view is beautiful!

Probably one of my new favorite summits! Lots of incredible views and gorgeous meadows filled with wildflowers. Also, a pretty chill hike overall. Well worth it! This route is a little longer than the Griffeth Creek route, but offers more views and a more gradual incline. Will do again with kids!

Probably one of my new favorite summits! Lots of incredible views and gorgeous meadows filled with wildflowers. Also, a pretty chill hike overall. We took the ridgeline trail (not the Griffeth Creek trail suggested here by AllTrails). The ridgeline trailhead is at 38°22'59.1"N 112°23'48.5"W. Well worth it! Longer, more views, and more gradual incline. Will do again with kids!

Lovely hike. Wildflowers are in full force. Was easy to navigate. There are rock cairns along the way to mark the route. Trekking poles are handy to have for this hike. Summit features peak sign and mailbox with registry.

If you want to get a rest from crowded parks like Zion, Bryce etc this is the right choice. I met one couple hiking, I had the peak all by myself. The path is hard to find at times but as long as you walk uphill you’re not that off. Hard to get lost. Although the altitude difference is not extreme, this hike is very strenuous because you start at a high altitude. Your legs will say “we’re alright”, but your lungs will say “stooooohhhp”. The view is worth the effort.

Important: the last 4-5 miles by car it’s a steep gravel road. My car engine was almost overheating. Be careful and in case of doubt park 1-2 miles before the designated parking lot, the last bit is the most difficult to drive.

Important: the description is wrong. DO NOT leave the road where it says here on the map. Follow the road a bit longer until you see a sign saying “Delano Hike”.

Long, uphill steep climb but very worth it at the top!

The trail is clearly marked. Not sure what the others are talking about. It does not say "Delano Peak" but the trail willl surely take you there. Tap "Directions" and that bugger will lead you straight to the right trailhead. Trail is easy to follow...once again not sure what the others are talking about...maybe it's tough if the extent of your outdoorsing is spent in front of a TV screen!

The National Forest had little to no visitors when I was there. Saw one tent, no people; a very desolate area indeed.

We were frustrated that the trail head was not clearly marked and we spent close to an hour searching. We finally just started on the Ridge Trail, thinking that we probably would end up doing a different hike than the Delano Peak hike. Eventually, there were red plastic markers on the trees, which we followed until they ended. At that point, we could see Delano Peak and bushwhacked to the top. Hike was just OK.

Great little hike for a 12k'+ Peak!! Even our little 3 legged dog made it up the entire way. Gorgeous views and so many wildflowers. The dirt road up to the trail was a little washboard but we'll maintained so cars should be fine. Plenty of camping along the forest road but it gets busy on the weekends. Enjoy!!

magestic.. favorite hike of the year for me.

be careful where you are walking, I almost got it from a porcupine right off the trail. I also saw one in the meadow near the water and flowers. saw elk, no goats..this hike is so worth it.

Beautiful hike. Very cold and windy on top but the view is definitely worth it!! Our 8, 13, and 15 year old kids all hiked it. Hard for the little one but she loved it and said she would do it again. You can also see mountain goats!

Feels like you are hiking in Scotland but drier. The views are spectacular in every direction. Mountain goat herds looked like little puffs in the distance on the cliffs. Bush wacked from Poison creek.

Great views from the peak and all along the route. There is not much of a trail, we just walked along the ridge line to the peak. Mountain goats were along the neighboring peaks, need binoculars to see much of them. We used the radio tower road for the first part of the hike, then cross country. Two miles, 980 feet of elevation gain.

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.
