Antelope Island State Park, the largest island in the Great Salt Lake, is home to a roaming herd of 500 bison. Pronghorn and bighorn sheep also share the rangelands that overlook the desert lake. Opportunities to view wildlife are available on backcountry trails, which are open to horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking and cross-country skiing. Please keep in mind that pets on leash are allowed on the island except on the Frary Peak trail. A visitor center offers information on the island's unique biology, geology and history. Please be aware that, during the month of May and part of June (usually until the weather reaches 90 degrees), Antelope Island has biting gnats (or "no see'ums"). Wear a hat or light hoodie and protect your face and neck with bugspray. Insects on the causeway are midges that don't bite, and brine flies along the lake's edge are harmless.

Great hike with a great view, perfect for early morning or late evening. Long trail but worth it

A great hike with 360 degree views that go on forever. The views of the Great Salt Lake and the surrounding mountains are stunning. Definitely do this hike on a clear day and in the fall, winter or spring. It would be miserable in the summer because there is no shade at all and the bugs would probably be overwhelming. I wouldn't describe this as easy but it isn't hard from a technical standpoint. It is a good climb to the top, similar in length and elevation gain to a hike to Lake Blanche. Loved it!

pretty easy, but great views. It's worth doing.

A beautiful time of the year to hike this peak. We went late in the day so we hiked it at a pretty quick pace and did it in just about 3 hours. We jogged most the way down because we were racing the darkness. We did have headlamps, but we wanted to try and get down without them. We did see a beautiful heard of big horn sheep near the top. This was an awesome hike with amazing views. Definitely a better hike for spring or fall. There is no cover and summer would be hot. We will do it again.

Dogs are allowed on both this and Frairie peak. Cold and windy great hike straight up. Beautiful views.

Great family hike in early Fall. Pretty easy hike with beautiful views especially once you get about a mile out!
