Manns Peak Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Manns Peak trail is about 4 miles roundtrip if you start from the Geyser Pass parking area. It follows the Burro Pass trail for about a mile and then splits off to steeply climb up to the peak. Follow the signs at Burro Pass intersection to stay on trail. This is a difficult hike. The Burro Pass trail is open to mountain biking but the Manns Peak trail is foot traffic only. No bikes are allowed on the climb up to the peak. Manns Peak is the 5th highest peak in the La Sal Mountains at 12,272 feet and has the only constructed trail to a peak in the range.

Please Note: To reduce damage to alpine plants and their habitat, please do not urinate on plants or soils above the treeline. Mountain goats crave salts and will dig up plants and soil where humans have urinated. When above treeline, it is a good practice to only urinate on areas of rocky talus or on snow.
