“A hike to the highest point on Antelope Island with 360-degree views of the whole Great Salt Lake.”— Danielle Cookie
Around the 1 mile mark, there is an open expanse with large boulders that you hike through, and the trail becomes quite steep again after passing through the last boulder. The trail winds around the mountain, and there are some slight inclines followed by a few steep passes again.
Around 3.0 miles, you'll reach the top of one of the peaks with a large antennae. It's a good place to rest if the flies aren't too active. Once you pass the antennae, there are two trails; the one that goes straight goes directly over the ridge and through boulders but it has been blocked off and should not be taken. The trail that goes slightly off to the right will dip down slightly and then continue up and around the mountain. This part of the trail is primitive and is very narrow with loose dirt and gravel so care should be taken while navigating this stretch.
Once you reach the backside of the mountain, there are a few switchbacks which will take you directly to the top. At it's highest point there are two markers from the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey from 1892 and 1963 and there are some unparalleled views of the Great Salt Lake and Valley.
