Hit the Elephant Head spur after doing the Split Rock loop. It’s a short additional distance and has outstanding views of the GSL. Definitely recommend.

Pretty moderate 9ish mile hike with great views at the top. We saw a few bison roaming and they were closer than I expected. The terrain is pretty flat for the majority of the miles and we made great time, about an hour and 50 mins up and an hour 40 mins down. Had 2L of water but didn’t need that much since it’s the second week of November. It was COLD make sure to bring gloves, hats, etc because it’s windy up top too. We only saw three other hikers the whole time but we saw around ten people horseback riding the trails. It costs $10/car to drive onto the island and they will take cash or cards. Highly recommend this trail! I’ll definitely be going back.

I loved this hike. It’s almost deserted on a Sunday morning while the trails nearer the White Rocks area got crowded. A real gem and not to strenuous despite the distance you’ll put in.

Gorgeous views over Salt Lake. There's no shade on the entire hike, so be prepared for that. We extended the hike with a few kilometres, easily done with the connecting Junction and Bone Road Trail.

Wasn’t really expecting much—just felt like we had to check the Great Salt Lake off on our list since we were in the area. Wow—really enjoyed our visit to
Antelope Island and this short hike. 360 degree view of an otherworldly landscape in the middle of this huge mysterious lake with mountains all around. Fascinating!

first time out. it was awesome! took my 3 dogs and 4 yr old daughter. they all loved it. it is an easy hike and great views at the top.

Take your camera and go at sunset! Pretty easy hike up, although the gravel on the way down might cause you to slip.

Great hike but long. I did it in October, starting temperature was 40-ish and high of 55. Cool temps knocked down the bugs, so do this hike when it's cool. For water, I used a Camelback with 3 liters, it was a liter more than I needed. Great views!

Short hike (~1.2 mi round trip) for some spectacular views! Great photo opportunities and trail is dog friendly. I usually bring out-of-state visitors to Antelope Island and we do this trail - good hike for all ages and it is a perfect vista of the Great Salt Lake. I hit this trail this weekend and bugs were not a problem. Visibility was affected due to the haze from area forest fires.

Went to go try floating. Gross flies all over water. Walked .5 miles to get to water and paid 10$ to get into park. Was not a total waste as we got to see bison and antelope. If you intend on going in the water be prepared for tiny flies all over you couldn’t stomach it.

Quiet, flat trail. No shade along the path but cool temperature along lakeside made it pleasant. Most stretches after the first half mile are suitable for running. Great uninhibited views of surrounding landscape. Although the presence of spiders on webs adjacent to the trail is immediately noticed, I did not have an issue with them or other bugs.

only .9 miles, not 1.3. This is short but fantastic with amazing views. You can't hear a single sound at the peak if you are alone, besides the occasional fly or airplane. 360 view of Salt Lake and the rest of the park.

Beautiful view for such a short hike! Completely silent up top. Flies weren't an issue for us.

A good viewpoint of the Great Salt Lake. Many birds and other wild animals on the island. The inverted reflection in water is so beautiful, like mirage!

Spiders! This hike may be wonderful any other time of year, but please note that right now this area is infested with millions of spiders. There are several news articles about it. We got 5 mins into this hike first thing after sunrise and brushed away a few cobwebs thinking nothing of it. We came to a pass where we couldn’t get through the trail without facing several webs with three large spiders and turned around only to realize we’d been surround by webs all over the trail. Even driving off to leave the island we could see these webs and large spiders from the road. If they are your thing and don’t bother you, it’s a gem. If you prefer to avoid spiders, definitely not your hike right now.

Awesome day seeing the history of Salt Lake and Lake Bonneville. Saw some great wildlife sites including elk and wild buffalo. Had to take the chance to wade into the great salt lake. Once is enough for that! Highly recommend.

Visited in March 2018.....it was still a little chilly but a nice and easy hike with a few boulders to scramble up or around in some areas. Not too busy with people.

The trail is a bit steep in places, but not bad overall. There are amazing views along the way and at the top.

Absolutely stunning if you go when the sun starts to rise. However, I won’t go back until fall as I was eaten alive by flies and mosquitoes everywhere.

Short hike but great for kids. I came here on 6/21/2018. Lots of spider webs to walk through while I was climbing the rocks but to start your day on antelope island with this short hike is a must!

My kids loved this! We did it in early spring before all the bugs and it was perfect.

Short climb to a great view of salt lake. There were plenty of bugs so use bug spray.

Absolutely gorgeous but Lord, the gnats.
