Trail shared by Ryan Delany

A nice warm-up loop on it's own or when combined with other trails for a longer route.

Description

This trail starts at the White Rock campground parking lot and can be done in either direction. It is most commonly hikeed clockwise. Start out by entering through the fence and making a sharp left. The trail will climb for about 3/4 of a mile and then split.

From here you can make a left, continue up and around the peak to a saddle where you can continue on to the Elephant Head Trail and Split Rock Loop Trail, or you can make a sharp right to circle back around, reconnect with the earlier split, and head back down to your car.

Flora & Fauna

Antelope Island is home to a large herd of Bison. They are often visible on this route as they roam the island freely.
