Steep and flat, then steep and flat. Last leg gives you views of three slides of the island. No bugs for us; haze hid the mountains so we will come back!

Great trail. Antelope island is always a great visit. Weather was warm but no bugs and not many people. Hike was just right after taking some tome off.

I did this little hike right before I did Frary Peak. This is not as hard

The landscape of Antelope Island is one of a kind - it’s easily worthy of being a Natl. Park. Hike is pretty steep for the first .75 miles, and then levels out once you reach the top of the ridge. Ends with panoramic views of the lake on both sides of the island, and the mountains beyond.

Very hot! Go early. We got down about 10am and it was already unforgiving. Stunning views all along. Nice short jaunt.

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.

This is a great trail, but not in the spring. We came here (May 8) & the bugs are AWFUL. My husband & I have red dots all over our bodies Antelope Island is much better in the cooler months.

This hike was so great! There were some steep parts but we made it up in good time. We were able to watch the sunset from the top and it was stunning! There were quite a bit of gnats, but they didn’t bite. We hiked back down and used our flashlights near the end. It was definitely one of my favorite sunset hikes

Due to COVID-19, the island was open only to Davis County residents. Lucky for us; we enjoyed a great trail. Crowds weren’t bad, only on the way back at the junction to Frary Peak. Biting gnats were out in force and, when there was no breeze, we were all eaten alive. Notwithstanding, the kids (5 of them, ages 11 down to 2) all loved the hike. Thanks to the little ones, it took us 90 minutes.

Unable to do this hike because Antelope State Park is open to Davis County residents only.

great trail to take mom and our two pups!! Even our pug did great! Pretty step going up, but it’s a short distance! When following this trail start on the Friary trail and try to park in the upper lot!!

Good short trail. Saw lots of kids and families on the path. Steady uphill climb but not too hard. Not muddy at all.

Pretty cool view at the top and not super tough if you’re in decent shape. Not muddy or icy at all.
