I went on this trail with a YM group. Begins steep but flattens after a while. We stopped near the first peak as it was extremely hot and the bugs were eating us alive. I’d recommend going early or late in the day. The first half of the trail is rocky, and you can easily trip on them. There is very little shade at all on this trail so going at a cooler time is likely better. Otherwise, it was a good trail and can by done by anyone, definitely not a hard.

Great hike! The views are stunning from the time you start the hike until the summit! I even got the chance to see a buffalo that was grazing on the train! I made a mistake and didn’t reapply sunscreen and am definitely paying the price, so make sure to bring something to cover you from the sun!

I really enjoyed this hike. We went at the perfect time. Bugs were just barely starting to come out but not the mean ones. I wouldn’t do this hike in any warmer weather than what it was (around 70). Elevation gain is very gradual other than the very beginning of the trail and the little push to the wire. Still not terrible though and absolutely beautiful!

decent trail with some good views pretty sketchy trails at the peak but nice hike up to the tower

A great hike all year round. I especially enjoy snowshoeing on this trail. There is enough elevation gain at a gradual grade, that makes for a good cardio workout. I always bring at least a liter of water, wear sunglasses, head covering and I pack a snack and a light weight shell to protect from the wind.

The switchbacks are shaded, but the summit is exposed to the sun and wind. Excellent 360 degree panoramic views of Ogden Valley, Mt. Ogden, Ben Lomond and the Great Salt Lake.

We were driving from SLC to Jackson and wanted a day hike and picked this trail as "something different". This was a fun day hike although there is no shade on this trail so water and heat can be issue. The three of us drank 2-32oz Nalgenes. This is a steady climb and there are not many steep sections. Great view of the Great Salt Lake at the top and take some binoculars to see the wildlife. Although ranked as hard, I have hiked moderate trails that are significantly harder.

Be sure to go right after the cell tower. To the left gets sketchy with dogs on lease but it’s possible to hike the ridge across.

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

Tough but worth it. Still a decent amount of snow on the ground. Pretty rocky at the end

Catching up on some reviews, so note that I did this in early September. I know many people start around 2am to get to the summit at sunrise, but I just wasn't done for that this go around. Started the trail around 7am and got back to the car around 2pm. Lots of people going both directions. The log at the top was already filled with 200 names, just from that day!! Saw a mother moose and her two babies, as well as a mountain goat. Beautifil wildflowers filled the fields. Great time with some good friends--would definitely recommend doing this one.

Upper parking lot is closed, so adds .5 miles from lower lot. No snow to speak of, and only a tiny patch of ice on the last portion of the trail ( past the communication tower ). Don't forget sunscreen, even in the winter, as you are fully exposed for the entire trip.

I loved this trail up to the saddle. I must have done it on the busiest weekend of the year so it was a little treacherous actually summiting due to mostly a lot of boys jostling, and the summit itself was very chaotic with lots of people on it. But the part up to that was pretty mellow and had such spectacular views of the wasatch and was lush with flowers. When I do this again, I’ll just go up the the big meadow on the timpooneke side or the emerald lake, once on the summit was enough for me.

Snow packed and ice covered trails. Ice trekkers are a must right now on the trail. I only went to were South Skyline Trail loops, then the snow wasn’t packed down and snowshoes were needed.

This trail is quite the hike up and has beautiful views.

Frary Peak Sunday. No real snow, didn't need traction. Today was a treat, only one spot with any real wind, calm at the summit, (no bugs in the winter) and only the bypass section with some soft snow on the trail near the summit. Dead calm at the summit. Upper TH is closed so this is a 8mi round trip.

I hike this every summer. Top 10 most scenic trails in Utah.

Great hike , trail in great shape just a bit sketchy at the very top with a little snow on the trail. Busy day with a lot of hikers.

great hike today, able to see big horn sheep, deer, bison and eagles. I would say it's more of a moderate hike.

amazing trail! the views were beautiful for the amount of effort you put in. although this trail is rated hard, I would say that it is a more moderate trail.

Did this Trail in October. The views are incredible. Each section offers more and more just insanely gorgeous scenery. This hike is steep and long. Be prepared.

Unbelievable views throughout the hike. Challenging and beautiful. One of the best hikes I've ever done.

Beautiful at sunset. Lots of north facing slopes so the snow is soft and the trail slippery in areas. To the 3-mile marker, the trail is not at all exposed, however the last .5 miles to the peak requires you to cross snow-covered 40 degree slope angle side hills areas with nothing for hand holds. We made it without difficulty, but not for the faint of heart. The views from the top, but other than the view to the South, the views at the 3-mile marker to the East and West are almost identical. Have fun!

Despite not being terribly long this hike was still relatively hard due to the constant gain and loss of elevation. I went in august and it was still very cold in the morning and at the top so a light windbreaker would be recommended.

When it really snows I like to cross country ski or fat bike this loop. There is minimal foot and even snowshoe traffic, due to the length and difficulty. Good for strong skiers to tackle. I like going counter clockwise and this affords a decent down by the power poles if you ski with full metal edges. With fresh powder try to beat the snowboard crowd up to the top. The reward is AT ski nirvana. Fat bike it on lesser days too.

This was a fun trail! Today was my first time doing it and it was beautiful. Good things about the trail is that the elevation gain is very spread out and gradual, it is very well marked and cut out, and the view from the top is beautiful. There were several great view points and I would say my favorite is actually right before you head back down the trail. This was a very difficult hike to complete in the snow, but beautiful (wear snow shoes for sure and it will be easier). Overall I really enjoyed it and it was a good level of challenging. Lots of moose tracks!

Favorite Peak of the year! We were grateful to have our poles and traction for the ascent and descent from the valley before going up to the peak. It was a great trail from start to finish and enjoyable to run. - Side note: do not start this trail at the paved trailhead. Be sure to head right on the jeep road about a half mile for the actual trailhead

One of our favorites! Does see a lot of foot traffic, due to its popularity.

Didn't see a soul. The last quarter mile was a bit icy. Def recommend

This was a great hike for early in the morning on an unseasonably warm day in November. I wouldn't want to do it in the summer heat or anytime there are bugs. There were bison everywhere when I arrived, across the road and in the parking lot at the trailhead. They are large and majestic, but not particularly charming. Hiking on Antelope Island is different than other hikes in the area, as you are walking through grasslands, with completely unobstructed views in all directions. The elevation gain on this trail comes in spurts, with interspersed segments that are level or downhill. It is a very well maintained and mellow trail right up until you get to the antenna near the top, at which point things change dramatically. The summit is on a rocky ridgeline, and it seems like some people just go straight and clamber up along the the rocks to the summit. That looked kind of iffy, so I took the obvious trail that dips down behind the ridge on the west side and loops around to climb up to the peak from the south. As described by Kristen below, that actually turned out to be a little scary also, and I would not recommend it for anyone afraid of heights or wearing shoes with poor traction. The scenery is great for the whole hike, but the summit is worth the extra effort.

Great hike.
Definitely a steep climb but well worth it. The views are fantastic.
The trail is in great condition.
