The Tushars are a volcanic mountain range in west-central Utah. They are the third highest range in Utah, behind the Uinta Mountains and the La Sal Mountains. The Tushars are usually not rugged, but they are often steep.
These peaks are among the easiest 12,000-foot peaks in Utah, and Delano Peak is the only 12,000-foot peak in Utah that makes a reasonable one-day ascent in mid-winter (most 12,000-foot peaks in Utah take several days to over a week in mid-winter).
Delano Peak is the highest peak in the range, but Mount Belknap, the second-highest peak in the range, as well as Mount Baldy, are probably the most impressive of the summits. The range is crossed by high roads, including Utah’s highest road at 11,500 feet elevation, so access is easy.
