Farnsworth Peak is a peak located on the northern end of the Oquirrh Mountain range, approximately 18 miles (29 km) south west of Salt Lake City, Utah. The mountain is named for Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of the first completely electronic television. It is used mainly for radio and television transmission, but could potentially become part of a ski resort owned by nearby Kennecott Land. On the eastern side of the mountain, the land is completely private, and access is restricted. The peak can be reached by hiking from the Tooele side, which is mostly public land. The public BLM land extends from ridge peak West to the base of the mountain. Public access to this land is available off SR-36 near Lake Point. Several Cattle gates need to be opened and closed, but are public access roads to public lands for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.
Famous quotes containing the word peak:
“I think Ive been good, but I want to be better. I think women reach their peak in their mid-thirties.”
—Mary Decker Slaney (b. 1958)
