Loved this trail. It's very short, but the views are spectacular. Exploring Antelope Island Park was amazing, and this view was a big part of that!

We did this trail at night. Wonderful views of the lake and the night sky. The moon was not full, but helped. Easy, but the slight rockiness made a flashlight a must.

Beautiful view of the salt lakes on one side and the Wasatch mountains on the other. Very easy. Walked up with two toddlers on our back. One friend was pregnant and made it to the top.

Be sure to take the park employees serious when they say watch out for bugs. You could see vortex pillars of insects swarming around the road. Looked like a scene from Exodus. Can't wait to visit again when the bugs aren't so bad.

Nothing special. Pretty easy hike, I do like the views of the west side of the lake and there are some cool rock formations on top.

Great views along this trail. Easy enough for the whole family, but opportunities for scrambling at the end for the more adventurous.
