The second longest trail on Antelope Island. This is a great day hike best made in the spring or fall as there is almost nothing on this trail to provide shade- you'll be in the sun the entire hike. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and head covering. I also recommend a long-sleeved light shirt. Good hiking boots are a must since the trail is long and rocky. If you are hiking this in the late spring or summer bring insect repellent as well. The trail rewards with fantastic views of the island, the Great Salt Lake, the surrounding mountains and wildlife that call the island home.
My favorite trail on Antelope Island! And I have done them all. For a moderate hike go clockwise around the loop. For something more challenging go counterclockwise.
Great trail. Best made in the cooler months March-May and October-November. Bring lots of water and snacks as 14 miles will take a good part of the day on foot.
