Dooly Knob offers decent views of the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Front, while overlooking the plains land of Antelope Island. There is plenty of wildlife. Buffalo, Antelope, Coyote, and various small rodents and birds live there. You will find a greater appreciation for the island by hiking.

Absolutely loved this trail! Overcast day with amazing views of the Buffalo, mule deer, grouse and pronghorn. The number of 6-8 point buck was impressive and the hike itself was perfect for my four year old daughter! She loved it and we’ll definitely be back!

Dogs are allowed on both this and Frairie peak. Cold and windy great hike straight up. Beautiful views.

This trail has a decent climb that is probably better done earlier in the day. We went mid day in July and there is no shade so it was a little hot. The views from the top were AMAZING and unique. I would definitely do this again next time we are in the area.

Bugs were not nearly as bad as expected. Zero shade throughout, so even though it's not a very long hike, bring more water than you expect to need. I had 2L in my hydropac and ran out shortly after reaching the top. Even though it was a hot and sunny day, the wind from the lake gave my sweaty bare arms chills, so I'd suggest longer sleeves.

Great views! The bugs were only
Bad in some of the shaded areas near the higher rocks. Other than that- an overall pleasant hike.

We saw some antelope and byson. Steep hike. Great outing but the bugs were aweful and made it bearable. They just hached - will go earlier next year.

Beautiful views and a nice, shorter hike. However this time of year the bugs severely take away from the experience.

A great hike, about an hour or so depending on pace. Great views all around towards the top, ( can even see Downtown SLC at a distance) It's a great reward for a such a quick hike.
