Hastings Pass

The famous Hastings Cutoff Trail came across Skull Valley and up through what is now known as Hastings Pass.

Explorers and emigrants such as John C. Fremont, Kit Carson, Lansford W. Hastings, and the Donner-Reed party all traveled through this area as a shorter route to California.


View from the pass (Cedar Mountains) looking East across Skull Valley to the Stansbury Mountains. Deseret Peak (11, 031') in distance.


{EDIT/UPDATE Jan 2006} NOW The 100,000-acre Cedar Mountain Wilderness Area!
