From I-15 near Parowan, UT take exit 78, then left on Main St. Turn left on E Center St, then this turns into S Canyon Rd. Follow this for about 14.5 miles, through Brian Head Ski Resort. Past the resort, look for the brown sign for Vista Overlook, and the dirt road turns right leading up to the peak. Drive this dirt road to the very end, at Brian Head Peak. This road is typically only from June – October. If the gate is closed, you will need to hike up the 3 miles to the peak.
