The Mormon Hill trailhead is located at the top of FSR-130. To reach it, drive north up Copper Creek Road/FSR-134 to a signed junction with the Garfield Canyon Road/FSR-228 (which goes to the Garfield Guard Station and beyond). Go left at this junction to stay on FSR-134. About 0.7 miles farther up FSR-134, reach a signed road junction in a large, open meadow. FSR-134 goes right here and follows Copper Creek. However, it is now closed to motorized vehicles and is only a foot trail. Go left up FSR-130 as it begins its steep climb to the Mormon Hill trailhead. A 4WD vehicle is required but high clearance is not necessary. After 2.3 miles from the open meadow, you reach the large trailhead parking area for the [signed] Mormon Hill trailhead (FST-329). There is a horse rail and a bathroom here (7,625 feet). The road is not too awful and people pull horse trailers all the way up here.

The Climb

From the trailhead parking area, follow a narrow footpath up through a patch of forest to reach the open summit area of Mormon Hill. The high point seems to be a collection of ground boulders. There is no summit cairn.
