Pretty easy hike but all of it is uphill so keep that in mind. The views were pretty at the top and it was fun climbing on the rocks

Hiked out here at sunset to see the meteor shower. It’s a well defined trail and an easy hike. There was a steady breeze so there were no bugs. Great views of the great salt lake.

If you see scientific equipment near the trail, please do not go near it. We are studying air quality and it is very sensitive to contamination. Thank you for your help!

Arrived here at 9a before the crowds arrived and we were the only ones on the trail for a good half hour. Beautiful surroundings and not challenging. I brought my parents (in their mid-60s and in average shape) and they found it easy. Wear stable shoes because there are some rocks to climb. Can’t wait to come back in a different season!

Absolutely gorgeous! Great rocks for little ones to scramble, lots of small caves to explore. Go early to avoid people and it has almost no shade. Incredible view!

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.
