This is a great day hike best made in the spring or fall as there is almost nothing on this trail to provide shade- you'll be in the sun the entire hike. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and head covering. Good hiking boots are a must since the trail is long and rocky. If you are hiking this in the late spring or summer bring insect repellent as well. The trail rewards with fantastic views of the island, the Great Salt Lake, the surrounding mountains and wildlife that call the island home.

Nice trail with great views looking west onto the Great Salt Lake. Not many flies out. No shade, so it can get hot if you do this trail in the summer time.

Trail is clear and dry. The bugs are out already. Repellent will keep the mosquitos away but the noseeums don’t care and can be really aggravating. They only seemed to be a problem between elephant head and the parking lot.

I loved this hike. It’s almost deserted on a Sunday morning while the trails nearer the White Rocks area got crowded. A real gem and not to strenuous despite the distance you’ll put in.

My first time ever hiking the island. This trail has me addicted. It was breathtaking!

Hiked this 3/20/18 with a friend. The trail is easy to follow and is fairly wide in places. Keep an eye out for all the awesome wildlife. We saw several buffalo, a herd of deer, and some great birds enjoying the March air up near some of the peaks. Take the Bone Road Trail to the trail head and then choose to go either on the South end or North end of the trail. We took the north end first. This is the more rocky part of the trail, but really awesome scenery. The south end of the trail is fairly flat with a long, steep climb up to the trailhead again. We measured the hike at just over 12 miles and it took us about 6 hours to do. If you're into Geocaching, there's several caches along the way that we found. Really good trail!

My favorite trail on Antelope Island! And I have done them all. For a moderate hike go clockwise around the loop. For something more challenging go counterclockwise.

Great trail. Best made in the cooler months March-May and October-November. Bring lots of water and snacks as 14 miles will take a good part of the day on foot.
