Brian Head Peak


At 11,307’, Brian Head Peak is the highest point in southern Utah, and affords visitors a expansive view of not only southern Utah but into neighboring parts of Arizona and Nevada. A stone pavilion built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps sits atop the peak and is a hub for a number of bike/hiking trails the criss-cross the Markagunt Plateau (a Paiute name meaning high land of trees) on the Dixie National Forest. The meadow below the peak served both Native Americans and pioneer settlers in the area.
