This is a great little trail. You'll follow part of this trail to get to the Frary Peak trail head. The first part of this trail is brutal. You'll go straight up for the first 3/4 mile. If you need to stop and catch your breath, do so and turn around to look at the amazing eastern view of the lake. Once you get up to the knob you have 360 views and there are several climbing spots on the rocks for better views and great pictures. Personally enjoy bringing bread and cheese to enjoy on the side of the knob and watch other hikers below.

Great quick hike. This is a great place to get lots of pictures of the lake and the northern part of the island without having to work too hard.

One of my favorite hikes this year. We went in the morning when it was a little chilly about 50°f with a breeze. Guessing that's why there were no bugs.

Excellent hike with beautiful views on the way up and down. Be careful as you approach the peak if it is windy. On the way down, the wind was strong and I had to hug the ground to keep from losing my balance. There are a couple of times the trail becomes hard to see and some places do not have markers. I hiked this trail in October and had no issues with bugs.

did this hike in early February one year. weather was 40 and bugless! no shade and a decent climb. I hated the hike after the radio towers. you gain all this elevation only to drop and reclimb very fast. I wouldn't do it again past the towers but I don't like heights and sketchy climbing over boulders

I got bored with the hike down. Not a lot of diversity in scenery, but still nice to cross off the HP of Antelope Island.

This was nothing short of an amazing hike. The ride out to the island is gorgeous, and the setting is filled with wildlife. The hike up is not too bad at all. The 360 degree views from the top are jaw dropping. You can see Ogden, downtown Salt Lake City, and the Great Salt Lake. We hiked up mid-afternoon and it was the perfect time!

Moderate hike until the end, where it gets a bit harder. Medium traffic. Views at the top are awesome. Called ahead to the ranger station to ask about the bugs. There was none on the day of our hike b/c of overnight rain and several windy days ahead of the hike. Always seem worth it to call and inquire because the bugs can ruin the trip. Saw a bison along the trail up.

Absolutely jaw dropping views the whole way up, but especially from the peak! Well worth the hike. This trail is rated as “hard” but I think most anyone in decent shape shouldn’t have too much trouble with this hike. There’s a bit of a scramble the last half mile or so, but nothing dangerous or too challenging as long as you stay on the trail. We went on May 20 in the morning and had NO problem with bugs. At one point, about halfway up, a few landed on us but after spraying ourselves with some back woods Off, we never saw another gnat. In terms of scenery and breathtaking views, this trail is #1 on my list.

It’s kinda easy until the last part. So worth it at the end. Pack some snacks. I would recommend to have a bug spray. It didn’t bother us, cause we sprayed a lot.

A great trail but we didn’t head the warning of the biting noseums. They are relentless and got all in out hair. Even through a mesh hat. Regular DEET bug spray does nothing to slow these creatures down. But the trail is nice. Sleep at some Places but mostly winding and cool Rock formations. Pretty wildflowers are in bloom now too
