Biting gnats turned our fun family adventure into a whole different adventure! Most of us are covered in at least 100 bites. They get stuck in your hair and feast away! Just hopping into the car real fast brings at least 50 friends with you. Even our dog got bit by the gnats. Do not go in the spring without a mosquito net!

Do not come until the bugs are gone. They are so bad and bug spray does nothing. We tried many trails today and they all were covered in the biting gnats.

Only giving it a one star because of the gnats. It’s a beautiful place but don’t come March-May, you can’t get out of your car without getting swarmed

Bugs. Lots and lots of gnats. We got bit pretty hard today and it really wasn't the most enjoyable. The views of the salt lake are pretty though.

Went yesterday (10 April) and the bugs are here!! I got upwards of 20 bites. They’ll be around until June. Trail still gets 5 stars for one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen

Beautiful views and not difficult. Just be aware the bugs are back for the season. Tiny biting gnats. Bring bug spray and try to stay in the wind.

This is a great trail for a 1.5-3 hour hike (depending on breaks). 1. Bring big spray!!! the portion of the hike next to the salt lake the bugs were relentless. 2. Be careful around the bison. There were many near and even on the trail. At one point I went off trail and walked through a field to give the bison enough space. 3. This hike is a combo of grassy hills, going around buffalo point and near the shore of the great salt lake. Overall had fun, great hike, but ran parts of the last couple miles to get away from bugs. FEE: Entrance and causeway fee for antelope island.

Great trail for little kids, seniors, and everyone in between. One small section of switchback-like incline, but really short and manageable. Like others said, it was quite busy, but we’re all looking for somewhere to go during this coronavirus. We went on the last day of March. The sun was shining, there was a breeze, and it was perfect. No insects at all, and no lake smell. The boulders at the top were better than any playground for my five boys, ages 7 to 15.

We went over spring break and there were lots of families up on the mountain. The hike is not very hard or very long and it's really fun at the top. There are great views of the lake, the beaches and the mountains to the south. There are huge boulders all over the top of the mountain that people can climb in and hide under. Many create natural caves under them that you can explore. This is a great hike for families. Not the best if your goal is to get away from other people. Only one spot in the trail at the top with water pooled in the trail. It was easy to go around it.

Perfect for little kids, mostly flat, but toddlers in a backpack suggested - so fun to climb and play on the boulders at the end of the hike. Plan to picnic and play there for a while!
