This is a gorgeous scenic hike winding around part of the Great Salt Lake. The trail on Antelope Island that runs about 300 yards from the lake. Trail has numerous rock formations and views of the Sierra-Nevada Mountain Range and the GSL. The hike begins at trailhead at the campground near Bridger Bay. There are restrooms at the campground. An easy hike that takes about 2 hours.

Great trail for beginners, young children, pets or a scenic stroll. Bugs are annoying at times and there is no shade but overall made for a pleasant afternoon walk.

My kids love this trail! I have a five year old and a One year old and they both hiked it really well. The view of the lake is also breathtaking. Very happy with this hike ❤️

Beautiful..peaceful, but a lot of diverse traffic. A lot of off leash dogs so be prepared if your pup cant handle that (like mine). Encountered horseback riders and a large group of mtn bikers...

Beautiful views. Easy enough for my toddler (though she tired out after a half mile so we carried her the rest of the way). So peaceful. We will be back!

We only did about a half mile on this trail yesterday because two huge bison were grazing on it. That was incredible...but intimidating! We are definitely going to come back and try it another day. Antelope Island is beautiful!

Great family hike in early Fall. Pretty easy hike with beautiful views especially once you get about a mile out!

Pretty easy hike although I assumed you'd be closer to the water from the description. Also tons of swarms of mosquitoes pack bug spray and a hat . Maybe some long sleeves and something to cover your face !

Really nice walk along the water. Instead of doing the in and out I hiked up and down Buffalo Point for an additional challenge and some nice views. Like elsewhere on Antelope Island, wildlife abounds.

This is a great trail to do anything on. Walking or riding a bike. There is a section on the northwest that can't be ridden, but other than that even riding this trail is great. During the summer there are many spiders that have their webs across the trail and may intimidate you but they are harmless. You can see all kind of animals along with rock formations and even items left behind from mans early days on the island. If you only want to do the trail one way, take two vehicles and park one at the end of the trail and start your hike at the other. About 2.6 miles one way.

A great easy hike. We started at the end near the White Rocks Campground. Sunsets are always amazing on this side of the island. Best to go on a breezy day to cut down on the bugs, and keep you cool as there is no shade. Fun rocks to clim on and explore. Beautiful bird song. No other groups were on the trail at all so it was very peaceful.

It was a very mellow enjoyable hike. But a lot of pesky gnats. The view is amazing a must do hike if you're in the area.

Fun trail that goes from the White Rock Campground around to the Bridger Bay Campground at the base of Buffalo Point. We saw some buffalo along the trail.

This is a fun trail. I would highly recommend this one for the kids. Once you get out to the point the rock formations out here are awesome. Plenty of rocks to climb and hide in right on the trail.
