One of the easiest county highpoints in Utah, Monument Peak makes a great side trip if in the area. The peak is the highest point in Carbon County and very near South Tent Mountain and East Mountain, the respective highpoints for Emery and Sanpete counties. It is easy to bag on 3 highpoints in a weekend, and the motivated can do all three in a single day. The three peaks are part of the Wasatch Plateau.
From Fairview, UT, head east on state road UT-31. Follow this about 8.4 miles to its junction with state road UT-264. Go left onto UT-264, then stay right too stay on 264. 10.6 miles from the UT-31/264 junction after the road crests a large hill, go right on Forest Road 018. Follow this good dirt road 7.7 miles to a small side road on the left that leads to the summit and small shack in 0.5 miles. There are a few decent camping spots along the road to the peak.
