This hike is actually just an optional side trail off the white rock loop trail. My husband and I walked it on March 10 as part of the longer trail. The sign from the White Rock Loop says that the Beacon is another .4 miles up a dirt trail, but it didn't even seem that long.

As we climbed, we could see one lonesome, chill bison hanging out on the top of the hill near the beacon. It was neat to explore these structures for a few minutes, and the view was spectacular from the top! You can see basically the entire Wasatch Front. There was even a little picnic table where we set our packs down and took a break for a minute.

As part of the White Rock Loop trail, this makes a great little addition!
